Gateshead-based singer-songwriter/guitarist Hannah Robinson released a dark dream pop single, ‘nineteen’.
‘nineteen’ is hauntingly vulnerable. Robinson is hidden in plain view, going through the motions while having no sense of self.
“As the age of nineteen approached I found myself hidden behind the face of someone who appeared to be happy and sociable, however inside I was struggling to ground myself and completely lost track of who I was. Feeling like an imposture in my own mind and amongst others, going out and partying became the answer to everything; it felt like a safety blanket to protect me from my problems.”Hannah Robinson
The accompanying music video shows Robinson alone in a crowd, moving within the shadows and using partying as a shield.
