Rising queer-pop artist Hallie is excited to announce the release of their debut EP, ‘This Is Love‘, due on February 2023.
To celebrate, they have also shared their new single ‘Love!‘, a euphoric burst of nostalgic pop. Hallie’s ability to craft cheeky, relatable lyrics and captivating choruses is on full display here, making this a must-listen for pop music fans.
Hallie says about the song: “I initially wrote ‘Love!’ about my partner when I woke up on my period feeling irritable but was instantly comforted by the love and depth of connection we had. After finishing the writing and production with Oscar Sharah, I found new meaning in the song and how it speaks to the platonic love surrounding me. Within all the chaos and confusion of my early 20s, there is so much support and love in my friendships, and I’m grateful for that.“
The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Hallie themselves. They explain: “I wanted to capture that platonic love and support, so I asked my closest friends if they would star in it with me. Running lines and dancing around in our lounge room felt so healing for my inner child; it felt like we were 8 again, being silly and full of joy while being creative. We’re all working out who we are and what we want at this time in our early 20s, so it’s really nice to be reminded that within all the chaos and confusion, there is so much love and support, and that we can grow and figure things out together.“
With ‘Love!’ continuing to build Hallie’s growing fanbase, it is clear that they are an artist to watch in the coming months.
