Hazlett ‘Karaoke’ : “I get a one track mind for making sure nothing happens to my friends.”


Off of LP ‘Thundering Hopes’ (out now), Hazlett conjures another flood of feelings in ‘Karaoke’.

“It’s about those moments when you move on and feel normal again,” said Hazlett of the album. “The times when you live a little reckless. The way you bury certain feelings to protect yourself. Nights when you wonder if it’s okay to be selfish and mornings when you notice nothing’s a waste of time. It’s a collection of stories about fumbling your way to feeling good again and how living’s never perfect, but you can make it pretty.”

Australian singer/songwriter Hazlett is one heck of an emotional and romantic deliverer of sonic purity and magisteria.

‘Karaoke’ is about being there when your friends need you – in this case while on a night out with Lindsay Lohan in NYC that got out of hand – “when that happens I have a paternal instinct that kicks in, I get a one track mind for making sure nothing happens to my friends.”

Teaming up with producer Freddy Alexander, Hazlett combines the heart and grit of the songwriters of old with an open-minded nature that takes in a plethora of modern pop influences.
