I don't have any issue with mainstream pop stars. I enjoy Carly Rae and Taylor and Selena but generally I want something with a little more tooth. Something with a little more grounding than what the standard pop line is. Hana Brooks has just that. Her voice and her sound are more mature and has a much fuller featured sound than a lot of her pop music counterparts. I love the earthy quality to her. She sounds like she's had some experiences that have lead her to where she is. She's got some life to her and she's still standing. She's been working her way across London on the Sofar Sounds circuit and she's building her fan base and making a name for her honest storytelling on stage.
"Leave It" is the latest single from Hana and it's got a bit of a Haim like quality to it. The chorus has a pretty amazing build to it and it's catchy as hell. She sounds absolutely amazing and it's a pleasure to listen to her sing. Her brand of upbeat, pop music is what I want more of in my life. I want her to be big. I want her to have a following because when you have songs that are this good, they deserve to be heard all over the world.
