Brisbane singer Hannah Sands has released a brand new song titled “Happy Girl”. This single is moving and brings out some emotions when listening to it. We can straight away hear the contrast between the title of the track and the actual lyrics.
“Happy Girl” is all about putting yourself together in front of people, but inside feeling completely different. The lyrics go back on a woman who has had a difficult past and isn’t feeling the best, having her ‘demons’ even though she had a big dream for herself. She sings about how basic questions never go further, we never really ask how someone feels.
As Hannah said about her latest song: “The importance of looking beyond surface-level appearances and the hidden battles that most of us are fighting“. We can all think of a moment where we weren’t feeling the best and only wanted to look good in front of people to avoid questions, well that’s what “Happy Girl” feels like…
As the lyrics go on: “Too busy fake complimenting / You kiss goodbye, suggest a lunch / But she won’t hear from you that month / But that’s okay she’s used to it“.
With a grounding in Jazz, hip-hop, and touches of guitar accompanying Hanna’s voice and story-driven melodies, the song slides into our ears.
