PREMIERE: Hanssøn Releases New Music Video For “Switchblade”

After setting the standards for herself and what she would keep or not keep in her life, Hanssøn clears out what is necessary of what is temporary.

“Switchblade” shares the story of a relationship turned sour, when she discovers that a foe has been pretending to be a friend all along. “I was in a relationship that turned out to be a bait and switch. What they were selling me wasn’t what they were offering, and I found myself in a really deceptive and hurtful situation that I didn’t know about. They were exposed for it publicly, but it was extremely humiliating to be linked to someone so incredibly messy”

The single pays homage to to Sia’s songwriting for “Straight For The Knife” – “Sia a huge influence, and I loved the context and the picture she painted, but I turned the theme on itself and wrote Switchblade for the person inside of me (and anyone else who could relate) that wanted some form of revenge.”

The extradimentionality of this song was given by Aramie Payton’s backing vocals “I had a friend of mine put some vocals on this track to give it another dimension and the presence of masculine energy.”

The video concept came from the idea of banding with your girls and taking revenge.

Hanssøn’s commanding vocals hauls you to an unmatched journey of vulnerability that’s more intense than you’d ever known.

The Harlem-based songstress was born in Sydney, city-hopping along the Sunshine Coast of Australia, until the pursuit of a musical career would land her in Brisbane.

As a formally trained singer-songwriter, and producer that is wholeheartedly devoted to her craft, Hanssøn furthered her professional career as a vocal pedagogue, promptly awarded with a scholarship to study in New York. Experiencing different cultures, places and people is a huge driving creative force and before committing to this cross-continental jump, Hanssøn travelled to London, where she lived and worked for six months.

Now fully immersed in New York’s underground artistic scene, the songstress has been building side by side with like-minded creatives from around the world for the past eight years. After a cataclysmic relationship breakup, Hansson bought a van and took her passionate melodies on a self-booked 40-date tour across the U.S.
