With daring honesty in her songwriting, songbird Hanne Mjøen left fans on the edge with her gripping music video, ‘Hell With You’. The single, released via Physical Presents, talks about a stagnant relationship and not ending it because you fear the reality of being alone. The music video features Hanne and her ‘old lover’ driving through town and eventually crashing, ending up in their own version of a heavenly purgatory.
Previously discussing the lyrical concept of the track with Sound Lab (read interview), the songstress added: ““Heaven is for girls who play nice” had been in my bank of ideas for a while. And writing with Karl Zine in 2019 we got a vibe, and it felt right to finish the idea with him. I don’t remember where it came from, but I’ve always been a fan of opposites like heaven and hell. The lyrical line: “Feel it when we talk and don’t communicate” was written at a time when I recently had walked out of a relationship. I wanted to write about what it was like falling out of love while still being in the relationship and wanted to describe my inner dialogue in this period of my life…”
Since releasing the single ‘Hell With You’, the song has already been a certified banger with mention from top-end publications such as PAPER Magazine and EARMILK. The single also featured on the tastemaker Youtube channel The Unique Vibes, which cover emerging and noteworthy dance music acts. Hanne Mjøen is certainly one to watch, as we feel the songwriter is on a roll with fresh sounds and lyrics.
