LA-based artist Hana Vu shares her first single via Ghostly International, “Maker”. It’s an incredible insight into the world of the 21-year-old, who’s tender banjo and piano sounds amalgamate to produce a bedroom pop/folk hybrid. The release comes with a video directed by Lucy Sandler, and its pairing is equally as beautiful.
“I am not religious but I imagined a sort of desolate character crying out to an ultimately punitive force for something more” says Vu.
Direcotor Lucy Sandler explains. “I think we have a lot to learn from children’s versions of reality – their complete and utter presence in the moment, their curiosity and complicated dichotomy of fragility and bravery,” says Sandler. “In ‘Maker’ I want the little girl to speak to everyone’s inner child, and remind us that nothing has really changed. We are still allowed to feel lost and search for meaning in everything we encounter, that the journey may be long and scary but we will all end up back in the fold of safety eventually or just where we’re meant to be.”
