Hana Eid releases “Weird,” and it’s her sound at its very best – that being percussion driven indie rock blended with brutally honest lyricism. Breaking through the Nashville-indie fog, Eid cements herself as someone everyone should be paying attention to. 

The track breaks Hana’s silence after her March single “Shrapnel” (which was #1 on Spotify’s Undercurrents playlist and included in both Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Indie). Now a 20-year-old living in Nashville, she spent the past year releasing her first batch of singles and playing 30+ live shows, ranging from basement gigs to headlines at The East Room & Eastside Bowl. Largely produced by close collaborator Tone Def (Briston Maroney, Gatlin, and The Moss) & marks an exciting new era for her sound. 

Listening to Eid’s music leaves me with the same question: How did she master making a sound that is this easy to listen to? It manages to disregard a corny formula while simultaneously making its influences presently clear. And the stream-of-consciousness way of writing, which she seems to have perfected, makes it all the more enchanting. Eid states: “I think loving people and making music are probably the most likely ways I can leave the world better than I found it.”

With that, it’s a very easy thing to find yourself stuck in a listening cycle with this song (saying this because I couldn’t take it off the repeat button).
