Hazel English announces Summer Nights EP, shares wistfully beautiful title track

Hazel English remains one of the most reliable presences in Indie music (Dream pop, Indie rock, however you’d like to categorize her, it doesn’t matter: she kicks ass). From the undeniable double EP Just Give In / Never Going Home to her sublime official debut, Wake UP!, she’s already had an impressive run, and she’s set to extend it.

English has just announced her new EP, Summer Nights, and shared its title track. Expanding from the throw back vibes of her debut album, “Summer Nights” is delightfully fuzzy pop, somehow managing to possess both a feeling of pure ecstasy and melancholy, all at once.

Working again with producer Jackson Phillips, English shares of the experience, and the EP’s direction overall, saying, “Jackson and I have such a great flow when it comes to working on music that it was easy to essentially pick up where we had left off. Our process together is very quick and fun, no second guessing. I also think the pandemic and time at home got me thinking a lot about my past and remembering high school experiences and those kinds of feelings that were so vivid at that time. So I found myself writing lyrics that were inspired by some of those experiences and then I kind of created a whole new story out of it.

Check out “Summer Nights” below, along with its equally gorgeous video, and look out for the full EP come June 17th.
