Emerging artist HEBE reveals an intimate stripped-down version of her recent electro-pop single ‘Hunting Me’,out now, as a self-release via Kartel.
Showing the sheer depth of her artistry, the Dutch singer and songwriter strips the “crisp yet soulful piece of electro-pop” as defined by Clash Magazine back to its bare, beautiful essence, with HEBE’s evocative vocals and absorbing melodies taking centre stage without losing any of their impact. Whilst pianist and vocalist Ruben Hein adds the mellow timbre of a Rhodes piano to the rich resonance of the Grand Piano played by HEBE.
“All my songs are born around the piano in my house,” explains HEBE. “When I started working in the studio with Huub Reijnders, Martijn Bosman and Ruben Hein we’ve added all kinds of layers, grooves and production sounds. With this acoustic version I want to show the way I wrote the song, purely focusing on the lyrics.”
Previously released EPs ‘The Beginning’ and the internationally acclaimed ‘Tell Me’, have garnered upwards of a million streams on Spotify, and have seen support from international tastemakers including The 405, Impose Magazine, Noctis Magazine, Earmilk, Vice and Music Week, whilst receiving airplay from Hoxton Radio, Fubar Radio and Reprezent Radio. This early international approval culminated in HEBE performing at the prestigious Metropolis Studios and at London’s renowned Camden Assembly, whilst back in her own country HEBE has already performed on national TV and radio shows.
With forthcoming debut album ‘Cards On The Table’ planned for release in Spring 2020, HEBE is set to make an impact on the international music scene and take her rightful place as one of the most exciting emerging artists of the year.
