Gretel Hänlyn drops new song ‘Wiggy’

We’re returning to Shoreditch for four nights of hot new music across January, in association with FairSound.

Ahead of her headline set for our Hello 2023 show at The Old Blue Last on 24th January (more on that here!), Gretel Hänlyn is sharing her newest single ‘Wiggy’.

“‘I’ve always thought it must be so nice to be a cat, to get massages and compliments and have a nice tail, nothing to do. So that’s pretty much what this song is about,” she explains. “I was inspired a lot by the smashing pumpkins / pixies and their punchy, kinda lazy, not-over thought bangers and knew I wanted to capture that sloppy charisma in this song before I even started writing it about my cat. I wasn’t very far into writing (I’d literally just laid down the baritone guitar/bass line and was getting into the drum sounds) when my mum sent me a photo of Wiggy lying on a bed being adorable and it just fit perfectly to the laid back nature of the song that was forming so I went with it.”

Have a listen to ‘Wiggy’ below.
