The seeds of cultural hardship will often flower into artistic epiphany given the right amounts of talent, imagination, and time.

We've written about Hannah Sands before — she is a neo-soul artist from Brisbane who takes her inspiration from Erykah Badu and Norah Jones, among many others. Her instantly-engaging and sultry vocal sound pairs beautifully with a production aesthetic that combines organic groove with subtle elements of electronic pop. The result is a refreshing combination of bass drops, personality, and melody-driven soul.

"Happy Girl" features the lo-fi R&B story of a small girl who carries a heavy load. The rich texture of Hannah's unforgettable voice carries us through the emotional journey from neglected solitude to a sort of tough-love redemption. The seeds of cultural hardship will often flower into artistic epiphany given the right amounts of talent, imagination, and time. With her new single "Happy Girl," Hannah tells that story with style and grace.

This track was written and produced in Brisbane, Australia.
