Hank May set to release sophomore album “Tails”, first single song and video “I’m Just A Lover Now” drops now

 LA-based artist Hank May recently confirmed his sophomore album “Tails” will be released soon, first single,  “I’m Just A Lover Now”
drops now with video.

Tails will be released October 6 on Dangerbird Records. Of the new song, Hank details:

“This song is a driving fast with the windows down car anthem that sounds like The 1975 meets Elliott Smith meets Weezer,” he describes. “I started playing a solo acoustic version at shows around the time my first album came out, and it had a vibe like ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis. Then I switched to a solo electric version that sounded like ‘Jesse’s Girl’ by Rick Springfield meets ‘Answering Machine’ by The Replacements.”

“Finally I had a eureka moment in my bed one night listening to the classic song ‘A Real Hero’ by College & Electric Youth from the movie Drive and decided it needed a big synth bass. That brought it into the 21st century. Producer Jon Joseph, with the help of Levi Matulis on drums, helped me take it up a notch and reach its full potential.”

Tails follows his debut album, One More Taste of the Good Stuff, which was released in 2021 to critical praise from FLOOD, Under the Radar + more. Read more about his last album HERE.

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
