Songwriter Hannah Curwood originates from the stark, remote region of Central Otago in New Zealand.
Previously Hannah has released 2 records, Sky Above, Horse Below (2007) and The Blind Love EP (2009). Both received to resounding critical acclaim, tracks such as murder ballad It's Been Snowing All Winter (www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuQK7Z_9Cuc) brought attention to Hannah's use of dark lyrics, twisted imagery and ethereal melody to earn her a place as one of New Zealand's celebrated alternative writers.
Now based in London, Hannah has embarked on a new project, working side by side with Roger O'Donnell of The Cure and a handpicked group of musicians to breathe life into her latest body of work. O'Donnell has supported the band by offering up his country home as a recording base, as well as providing guidance with vocal performance, arrangements and his expertise in synth programming.
The resulting 10 songs bring the likes of P J Harvey, Anna Calvi, Sharon Van Etten, Laura Marling and Smog to mind - delicacy entangled with intensity. The album is currently being mixed by Paul Corkett (The Cure, Nick Cave, Bjork) and will be released in April 2015 on O'Donnell's own label 99X/10 (www.99timesoutof10).
