Following uproarious performances at BIGSOUND last month, Hope D has revealed her tempestuous new single Senseless via AWAL. The song will feature on the Brisbane based singer/songwriter’s debut album ‘Clash of The Substance‘, available Friday 10 February.
Senseless offers up confessional self-knowledge in a song that explores regret and vulnerability. “I wrote ‘Senseless’ in a time in my life when I was constantly not sober to try and escape my reality of being unhappy in an on/off relationship,” says Hope of the single. “I wasn’t talking about how I really felt and was indulging in different substances to allow me to feel numb and have a better time with where I was at because that was easier than coming to terms with the situation. It is a very angry and intense song, but the anger is directed at myself rather than my partner at the time, because I wasn’t doing anything about my unhappiness and just using drugs and alcohol to escape it. The song references my forthcoming album’s name ‘Clash Of The Substance’, and is an inspiration for all the songs on it.”
Hope D won’t be held responsible for decisions made under the influence of hormones, heartbreak, alcohol and the other intoxicants which go to war in the arena of her debut LP, ‘Clash Of The Substance’. Armed with a painful honesty, her guitar and a dangerously low balance on her debit card, the queer coming-of-age soundtrack cements her as one of Australia’s most refreshing new voices.
Produced by Aidan Hogg and mastered by Joe La Porta, ‘Clash of the Substance’ features the aforementioned Senseless, the instant earworm Emerald, the infectious Hate Goodbyes and the intoxicating Happy Hangover.
Earlier this year Hope D performed her first national headline tour and took the stage at Groovin The Moo. Next on the dance card, Hope will perform at The Zoo’s 30th birthday party in Brisbane on Friday 9 December, with further dates to be announced soon.
