Hannah Schneider – Open Wall

“Feels like Hannah’s deep, emotional vocals, which sometimes flirt with a bit of delightful harshness can indeed open some walls. She knows how to pull you into her world like a mermaid with her spelling chant and before you know it you’ll be hooked on this dreamy blend of lo-fi beats, long sustained strings atmosphere and sensitive piano.”


Hannah Schneider releases her new single "Open Wall” - May 6. on Copenhagen label Midnight Confessions. Its a song about past and present, and the invisible wall that divides what we once were and what we are now- a song about lost love.

The song is taken from Schneider’s forthcoming album Ocean Letters - an album inspired by the mysteries of nature and the oceans. The track starts out with a very sparse instrumentation of only Schneider’s mesmerizing vocals and piano that could almost remind the listener of an old James Bond song, but the nostalgia quickly evaporates and gives space to a grand and sultry electronic driven chorus of roaring synths and drum machines.

Open Wall has been created in collaboration with Danish producer Nicolai Kornerup, with whom Schneider also creates music in electronic outfit AyOwA.
