A Q&A with John Linnell and John Flansburgh at Twilio’s Signal conference last week.
Danish musician Hannah Schneider is bringing her dreamy electro-infused singer/songriter sound to the UK for a run of dates in June. Following her debut UK album release of “Red Lines” on British indie Lojinx (on Mermaid/Sony in Denmark) Hannah will be bringing her epic one-woman show to the UK for only the second time. Performing all instrumentation herself whilst looping and singing infectious hooks and harmonies, audiences can’t fail to be impressed.
“a provocative, pioneering artist” – Clash Magazine
“We simply love this woman and will shout over the rooftops about her dreamy electro-pop sound” – Never Enough Notes
“flourishes of minimalist electronica and gorgeous melodies” – The 405
“100 Artists You Must Hear In 2015” – Planet Stereo
Schneider creates melancholic and playful pop, crafted with a love for the singer/songwriter tradition and a fascination with electronic sounds and samples. Inspired by her environment – the sounds surrounding her – Hannah incorporates a diversity of instrumentation and timbre that adds a unique dimension to the expertly constructed pop tunes. Her music is imbued with themes of melancholia and loneliness that are conveyed with an engaging charisma in her voice, instrumentation and expert arrangements.

well it’s a good thing that I brought a napkin
I knew that this would happen
why does this always happen?
that a day of impulsive fun becomes an evening
of injury, blood and grieving
injury, blood and grieving
make way make way and stand aside
the crowd takes up the cry
he comes he comes
bow down bow down and lower your eyes
before the litter borne by men in fancy uniforms
a chariot from which a siren warns
the regal flashing lights and royal horns
behold the great one comes
you’ve got an electric knife
and I’ve got the need to spite my face
I’ve got a nose, I know what to do
hand me that electric knife
marry me and be my wife
be by my side in the electric parade
help me out I can’t seem to get this window open
never mind now it’s open
I think my hand is broken
