HANNAH ROSE PLATT’S new single, the Ed Harcourt produced “Feeding Time For Monsters” is out now, ahead of her new album, ‘Deathbed Confessions’, which arrives on 19 May via Xtra Mile Recordings.
Complimenting the song’s ghostly narrative, Hannah has teamed up with esteemed animator William Davies to produce a spooky ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’-style video.
Hannah explains: “If a house represents the psyche – what would haunt the rooms of our very own haunted houses? I explore a mix of my own PTSD experiences and personal ghosts in this song. Ed and I wanted to create a sense of chaos and dissociation with woozy vocals and thrashing guitars (and the animation by William Davies is just astonishing! Check it out!).”
A singer-songwriter with a penchant for the peculiar and a multi-instrumentalist who relishes a murder-ballad, Hannah derives inspiration from the dark, the depraved, and the eternally damned.
Speaking about her vision for the ‘Deathbed Confessions’ album, Hannah says: “I’ve always been fascinated by the variety of emotions ghost stories and horror can evoke. I wanted to create a sonic anthology series of haunting vignettes and wrote a collection of songs exploring polarised themes of death, love, the afterlife, murder, regret, the uncanny, the kindness of strangers, and the downright bizarre! The characters in the songs are linked as they travel by train to the afterlife, each revisiting key moments, decisions and regrets that subsequently shaped their lives. I hope the listener feels a desire to curl up and be transported back to ‘story-time’!”
Hannah can be seen supporting Tom Jenkins at Cardiff’s Tiny Rebel on April 28.
