LA based artist Hazel English speaks to our desire to escape the confinements of claustrophobic relationships – whether that’s with a person or place – in her new single “Five And Dime.” It’s a 60s-drenched pop that channels an ethereal moodiness as Hazel illustrates the subject of her affection who seems to devour her ad nauseum. Enjoy:
On her song, she shared: “It’s about the desire for space and independence when feeling stifled in a relationship. I wrote it about a trip I took to Oakland when I just needed to get out of LA for a bit. ‘Five and Dime’ is actually an old slang term for the area code 510 which covers the East Bay, so I thought it would be a fun way to refer to the place that once used to be my home, while also invoking a sense of nostalgia for a time when a phrase like five and dime was very common.”
“Five And Dime” is from Hazel’s upcoming record Wake UP!, out on April 24th.
