New Music: Hazlett – Slow Running

Australian indie-folk singer-songwriter Hazlett has quickly become a firm favourite of mine – find out why here!

Slow Running is another stripped-down folk song, containing a gorgeously strummed acoustic guitar as the main instrumentation. The track has a subtle beauty to it, as Hazlett’s dreamy vocals drift over the music in an effortless manner. Occasional backing effects appear every so often, adding some lovely textures into the background of the tune. The piano arrives on the chorus soon after, elevating the tune into a deeper level of beauty, ensuring fans of the indie-folk genre will find much to love here.
