In the past week Jet Rewind, Maria Kelly, Angelo De Augustine, Fast Romantics, The Big Drops, Beacon, Nearby Pastures, Talay, Ride, and Floco Torres have all unveiled standout new tracks. Hazel English also returned with yet another spellbinding track, continuing a white-hot streak of quiet perfection. Once more, the project delivers an airy, winsome take on powerpoop that feels effortless; “Love Is Dead” operates as a breath of fresh air. As is typically the case with Hazel English songs, “Love Is Dead” is essentially a series of grace notes strung together, tying in a melancholic tendency with an abundance of warmth and a closeted optimism. Gorgeous and uncompromising, “Love Is Dead” stands firmly as another in a string of modest but dazzling successes for Hazel English.
