Brisbane singer-songwriter Hazlett closes out 2019 with the release of his latest single, "Monsters," a poetic reflection on the reality that life's journeys are often riddled with unanticipated twists and turns. We all make mistakes along the way, and that is just human nature. Musically, "Monsters" is pure indie pop perfection, with its delicate acoustic treatment that transforms into an incredibly hopeful and infectious chorus that will have you singing along. Hazlett's emotive, heartfelt vocals are the icing on the cake, driving home the track's honest lyrical theme.
In his social media posts, Hazlett remarks on the personal significance of "Monsters": "A song 3 years in the making, a song that got me signed and dropped from a major label, a song that made me change the way I live, a song that saw me move half way across the world… This is the most important song I’ve ever written & released. I hope it means even an ounce as much as it means to me."
Are we monsters?
Led by the things we wanted
Longing to be more honest
Desperate to find what's haunting us, haunting us
Written by Hazlett, along with Freddy Alexander and Sebastian Lundberg, "Monsters" is taken from Hazlett's forthcoming EP, set for release in early 2020, which will also include his previous outstanding singles, "Suncats" and "Fireworks."
