Liv Hanna Releases New Single "lonely"
Liv Hanna kicked off the summer with the fiery track, "Back To Hell." The eclectic, "Back To Hell," is a mental health anthem. The track equates Hell with the hellish headspace that many are in or constantly find themselves falling back into. The single draws on Liv Hanna's personal experiences and takes a deep dive into topics such as isolation, rejection, and depression. The song isn't the quintessential Pop record as it features sounds from various genres such as Alt-Pop, Dark Pop, Indie Pop, and Pop Soul. The songstress now returns to close out the fall with her new single, "lonely." Similarly to "Back To Hell," Liv Hanna puts her unique, distinctive twist on the Pop genre. "lonely" may best be viewed as an Alt-Pop/Dark Pop record, but the song is more eclectic in nature as it features synths, the ebb and flow of up-tempo and downtempo sounds, and has elements drawn from Electropop, Pop Rock, etc. Also, in a similar fashion to "Back To Hell," "lonely" provides listeners with heartfelt lyrics and emotive, booming vocals. Ironically, "lonely" will make listeners feel less lonely.
