Hazel English is a 25-year-old Oakland-based artist who makes beautifully blurry indie-pop music powered by transcendent melodies and caked in layers of Californian sunshine and redolent reverb.
Her debut 12-inch vinyl EP, ‘Never Going Home’, is out now on Marathon Artists/Canvasback and collates a brilliant snap-shot of her DIY creations to date. Those that have followed her meteoric ascendance through the hazy blogosphere so far will recognize the title track “Never Going Home” and “It’s Not Real”, both of which were first premiered in demo-form via her Soundcloud and with trail-blazing champions like Gorilla Versus Bear, Stereogum and The Line of Best Fit, have clocked up over a million listens between them, making her something of internet sensation before she was even signed. The EP also contains three previously unreleased new gems.
