Hana Plays the Late Show at Mercury Lounge on Friday NightJune 15th, 2016
Singer-songwriter and producer Hana burst onto the scene last year with the single “Clay,” which earned her shout-outs from Lorde and Grimes and moved Nylon to proclaim, “Meet the Internet’s newest music obsession” and that the song “was an intimate, stripped-down piece of synth-pop perfection, with a hook that burrows itself into your head and refuses to get out.” Of course, it turns out that Hana (above, doing “Chimera”) wasn’t new at all. Hana Pestle had been releasing EPs since 2008, including this year’s five-track self-titled effort (stream it below). She’s toured with Grimes and Lana Del Rey and now you can see her play Mercury Lounge on Friday night. Electro-pop duo Frances Rose open the show.
