Hannah Hausman finds her voice & says goodbye to toxic relationships in “will i ever feel like this again?”

The track builds on a sentiment we’ve all likely experienced in a situationship – “are we just friends? or more? or less?” – and the inevitable process of walking away from what’s clearly toxic for you. With her honey glazed vocals over sincere poetics and crisp production, you’re instantly invested in how the narrative develops. It’s this same relatability in their art and with their fans that led Chelsea Cutler, QUINNXCII, or Jeremy Zucker to the top of the charts – all artists Hannah Hausman credits as key influences in her work.

The Neighbourhood Watch – Check out our new single “Focus Up”

We make music about growing up. With “Focus Up,” we learned that age can make someone ruthless.

It can be difficult to keep friendships intact as we grow. With more responsibility, comes the need to make more selfish decisions. “Focus Up” was written after my best friend made a choice that broke my heart. I don’t blame him though. He had to do what was right for him.

My favourite lyric is the second line: “Listening to John and you.” I’m talking about listening to John Coltrane and my friend’s SoundCloud in one whiskey-fueled listening session. It reminds me of him, and Montreal.
