Following on from a breakthrough year in 2022, which saw her deliver her highly-praised debut EP 'Slugeye', Gretel Hänlyn is back once again with another brand new single.
The new track 'Wiggy' marks her first piece of new material for 2023, and sees her continue her pursuit of bold and euphoric pop-rock anthems.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, “‘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. 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.”
