Today’s new music spotlight is on HANNIE

About: HANNIE are the songwriting duo of multi-instrumentalists Hannah Koppenburg and Annie Wagstaff. Forming HANNIE in 2017, Hannah and Annie initially met at ACM University in Guildford, the only girls swimming in a male dominated sea of aspiring guitarists and keyboard players. Hannah, originally from South Germany plays keys and Annie, born in Surrey, guitar and it didn’t take them long to connect musically – going on to play in various bands before eventually forming HANNIE last year. ‘We’ve been doing these online videos for a while and it’s really exciting for us to have our own track out’ says Annie ‘It’s been a totally different experience from playing for other people and we love it!’ Following a stint of session work with other acts the pair moved to East London, turned their living room into a studio and have been writing prolifically ever since.
What Hidden Herd say: A welcome taste of fresh air, tied to the tastes of London its tinted summer hue. HANNIE push forward into a new foray, with gentle musings of the golden 80’s in tow.
