“Dont get deceived from the first 20seconds "I.W.Y.T.F.M.W.Y.H." from Hans Hella is not your next chill song, quite the opposite as unleash a strong synthpop energy and beautiful vocals full of retro vibes and through a bit melancholic atmosphere. A track to hit on before go out for a wild night. "I.W.Y.T.F.M.W.Y.H. is a reimagining of a lost Billy Idol song - it tells the story of a bizarre night spent at the Chelsea Hotel and all of its endless possibilities."”

Growing up on a steady diet of synth-pop, post-punk, and emo, Hans Hella is a veteran New York-based singer/songwriter turned producer who records his unique blend of alternative pop in seclusion. He is greatly inspired by the record-makers of both past and present, from Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra) to Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) to James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem). His debut single “Just Wait” was mastered by grammy-winning engineer Dave Kutch and highlights the pedal steel virtuosity of J. David Carrera (featured on LP's Lost On You).
