King Hannah's 'A Well Made Women' is out now!
Today, the Liverpool duo of Hannah Merrick and Craig Whittle, aka King Hannah unveil their latest single “A Well-Made Woman”, a beguiling, wraithlike tone poem of a track, accompanied by a simple yet suitably moody visual.

Taken from their forthcoming debut album, details of which are yet to be announced, “A Well-Made Woman” draws deep from the well of haunted Americana, finding inspiration at the intersection of the lysergic folk of Mazzy Star and Cowboy Junkies and the dark alchemy of the likes of Smog and Codeine, but stripped back, contoured and refined, reflective of the pair’s respect for the potency of economy and a pitch black sense of humour. “A Well-Made Woman”, for instance, rides in on a sinister walking guitar line to the rattle of a voodoo rhythm, while Whittle whips up a growing storm of feedback and Merrick’s smoky, feline voice wraps itself languorously around lines like “I wanna be a mother one day…something tells me I’ll be waiting a long, long, long time”. The video produced and directed by Whittle meanwhile, is another example of the pair’s mastery of offbeat simplicity, with surreal projections and oversaturated colours bringing the song to vivid, cinematic life, like lost frames from a Jodorowsky movie. You too will fall under their spell.
