Hazel English sounds like a female led Day Wave. I just found out today that Jackson Phillips of Day Wave helped collaborate her new EP Just Give In which is the first half of this new record Just Give In / Never Going Home. The album is a combination of these two EP’s. I have never heard of Hazel English until now though I have been a Day Wave fan for a little while now.
Long story short—
Just Give In – So good.
Never Going Home – Pretty good.
That Thing (Bonus Track) – Eh.
Overall I really enjoyed the first half of the record; however, the bonus track makes me a little skeptical for Hazel’s future. I hope she can continue to make good music and she’s caught my eye for now.
