Futuristic, soulful, and seductive are what come to body and mind as I describe the newest release of musician/singer-songwriter, hendren. The song is entitled Hasjasjeen, and sonically, it lies in a universe where Frank Ocean, Jim Jarmusch and Father John Misty throw a party in a small dank underground club in Berlin packed with 50 souls. Here hendren's R&B-drones thrive and saturate the room in a mysterious darkness where his melancholic pop songs come to life to never see the light. Searingly honest and personal, the singer-songwriter's lyrics frequently delve into mental health, addiction and, dark romance.The single reminds me of my pre-pandemic life. Floating between social spaces and art exhibitions, Hasjasjeen feels like a carefree existence of bliss, allure, and creativity. The visual is out of this world. It is a refreshing expression of where art and freedom of speech meet music.
Hasjasjeen is the 3rd hendren song to be released and will be accompanied by a video created by himself and his brother Robert Zwart, in 2 nights, with 1 camera and 2 lights. Hasjasjeen will appear on Hendren’s debut album, "Hendren 1" due out in September 2021.
