Stockholm-based Australian indie-folk artist Hazlett makes a surprise return with new cut 'Blame The Moon'.
Released today via Nettwerk, 'Blame the Moon' is the stellar return for indie-folk artist Hazlett. Barely a season removed from the release of his debut album 'Bloom Mountain', the new track is the first glimpse of a new EP recorded in the Swedish countryside.
Speaking of the new single, Hazlett added, “The easiest thing in the world is to think it’s something else’s fault. The grand plans, the setbacks, the lowlights, they have a tendency to slowly take their toll.: He continued, “Even though you know deep down the universe isn’t out to get you, there’s a strange relief found in leaning on an excuse. It’s not a perfect remedy and it’s one hell of a bad habit to break, but on those days when you just don’t have the fight in you anymore it can be the thing to get us by.”
A few weeks after the single’s release, Hazlett will make his long-awaited return home to Australia where he will connect with fellow Australian artists Hayden Calnin and Paige Valentine for an east coast tour presented by SoFar Sounds. The tour will take the trio to stages in Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, and Melbourne. Tour dates are below and tickets are on sale now.
Hazlett was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia but if the past few years are anything to go by, he’s very much bloomed in Sweden. An old friend, one big break-up and playing Oasis’ 'Wonderwall' three times a night was the unplanned cocktail of moments that saw him throw adulthood to the wayside and venture to the other side of the world.
A pocket full of nerves and a tangled mess of memories became the start of Hazlett’s unique brand of “Indie Ballroom Folk”. But everything crystallised one summer in Stockholm after finding the fabled collaborator chemistry in now close friend Freddy Alexander. A lot has changed since then and what started as a way for him to “figure out some things in his head…” has now become a whole world of music and beautiful details to move through. Emphasised by the release of his debut album 'Bloom Mountain' in early 2023.
'Blame the Moon' is taken from Hazlett’s upcoming new EP, due out later this year.
