Hannah Cohen - Child Bride

Hannah Cohen - New York songwriter, photographer and one-time model tip-toes quietly in the shadows of heartbreak and loneliness with her delicate, artful folk/pop, adding a healthy dollop of tear-stained melancholy to the sweet/tart confessional confections...who figured despair could sound quite so sultry? // Release: Child Bride (April 24, Bella Union) // Sounds like: Producer/ instrumentalist Thomas "Doveman" Bartlett (Antony and the Johnsons, The National) keeps the tone ethereal and dreamlike, immersing Cohen's airy, cool and detached vocals in a warm bath of strings, plucked guitars and haunting piano chords and drawing the listener in to the pure, whisper-soft sound of her world-weary vocals...the cream of NY's downtown musicians add a lustrous depth to the lush but never overstated sound...

Quote: “For the past five years I have been mostly listening to Brazilian vinyl from the 60s and 70's. The classics like Caetano Veloso—his record Jóia is an absolute favorite of mine.” // What we like: it took a few listens, but "The Crying Game" connects emotionally with a simple, disarming directness, Cohen's unsentimental, girlish vocals adding to the oddly affecting mood of supreme sadness..."Don't Say" is all about a languid, less-is-more production from Barlett, Cohen's lament allowed the room to stretch out slowly, meticulously (watch the live video below)...
