Los Angeles songwriter, Blake Hazard, has announced a new solo album, The Eleanor Islands, available July 9. The Eleanor Islands is the first new music from Hazard since co-founding The Submarines with ex-husband John Dragonetti in 2005. The pair released three acclaimed full-lengths between 2006-2011. In conjunction, Hazard has premiered the video for first single, “Colonnade”, directed by Simone Leuck, via SPIN.
“The video plays with stereotypical representations of a female breakup and the glamorous leading lady in crisis,” said Lueck. “Referencing the theme of duality and an imaginary man from the opening verse, Blake exists in a parallel fantasy world inspired by cinema’s mid century melodrama, 1960s girls groups, Blake’s own style and the way she sometimes wears her hair.”
