Hannah Robinson has recently dropped new single, The Well. Featuring guitar from Scott McKeon (Sir Tom Jones, Lana Del Ray), piano from Paul Stacey (The Black Crowes, Tal Wilkenfeld, Noel Gallagher) and drums from Russ Parker (Thea Gilmore), the track has an unsurprising indie sound to it. The Fountain caught up with Hannah to discuss the new music and her plans for later in the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to The Well?
It’s been great – I’ve not released anything that sounds like this before, so it’s been really cool to have people hear it and get it. Hopefully people bring their own meaning to it too. It just feels good to get it out in the world.
TF: And can you sum up the track in one sentence?
A rocky but melodic, vulnerable but expressive track with a killer band.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?
I’m going to be writing for my next record. I’m planning to release an album next, so I’m enjoying immersing myself back into the writing process and seeing what comes out. We recently recorded a new track so things are underway, which I feel is good to keep building on – it doesn’t feel like I’m faced with a completely blank page!
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I’ve been lucky to play in some beautiful and individual old theatres. I love venues like that where you can feel the history and sense all the shows that have happened there in the past. Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London had a similar feel with all the old gig posters pasted up backstage. The Paradiso in Amsterdam is also beautiful, and so many of my heroes have played there. I’ve got a full band gig coming up at The Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne, Dorset, on Friday 8th October which I can’t wait to play!
