Celebrated songstress Hanne Mjøen has released her latest single, ‘Too Tired (Don’t Feel A Thing)’ on now via Physical Presents and accompanied by a colourful lyric video. The single follows the release of her highly successful ‘Hell With You’, which was accompanied by an eye-catching video and is currently nearing a million views across streaming platforms. The songstress has previously worked with well-known artists such as Matisse & Sadko, Deepend and Astrid S and helped write R3HAB’s legendary single, ‘You Could Be’. As a result, she has received support from other publications such as PAPER Magazine, Billboard, Refinery 29, Ones To Watch, Pop Sugar, Pop Matters, The Fader, Teen Vogue, Your EDM, The Line of Best Fit, EARMILK, Rolling Stone India, Atwood Magazine, Fred Perry Subculture and Magnetic Magazine to name a few as well as airplay from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and public national radio stations YLE X3M (in Finland) and NRK P1 (in Norway. In total, the singer has collected over 37 million streams on Spotify and Youtube with features on well-known channels such as 7clouds, MrSuicideSheep, Unique Vibes, SuperbLyrics, ChilledAndVibing, Taz Network and The Vibe Guide to boot.
The Norwegian artist celebrated great success with her single ‘Sounds Good To Me’. However, it was after this hit single that she turned away from the “mainstream” section of the industry and began to focus on artists such Robyn, Flume and Lorde who inspired her to try something different. Staying grounded while also finding a way to celebrate her femininity, Hanne Mjøen’s unique style can be compared to the likes of MØ, Sigrid and Dua Lipa. Hanne Mjøen is from the small town of Oppdal however she lived in Oslo for 6 years before “returning to her roots” and moving to the town of Trondheim.
Hanne Mjøen shines best when she remains true to herself, as we see in her latest single. ‘Too Tired (Don’t Feel A Thing)’ is a gentle yet honest look at the ambivalence that surrounds depression, reinforced by delicate electronic embrace of sound like an exo-skeleton rising in protection of its inner inhabitant. The singer reveals another layer of her complex nature with soaring yet poignant vocals.
Speaking of the ‘Too Tired (Don’t Feel A Thing)’, Hanne Mjøen tells us: “I created the song to reflect the feeling of being exhausted after a fight, regretting what you said, and reflecting if we work being more than friends. It’s about shutting down when you feel too much, and making yourself go numb, cause you’re too tired to feel anything, and too broken to let someone in on it. When watching the other person cry doesn’t make you sad anymore, cause you’re in a state of mind where nothing affects you.”
