Usually a Crème Brûlée is a quite sweet and tasty affair but in the case of Liverpool-based duo King Hannah and their debut single by the same name it’s more of a bittersweet experience. Over the course of six and half minutes Hannah Merrick and Craig Whittle unravel a breathtaking piece of melodic heaviness that feels like an even darker take on the hypnotic sound of Mazzy Star. The first half of Crème Brûlée is already pretty haunting but it gets even better once the two-piece unfolds the track’s full instrumentation. It’s pure, raw and honest from start to finish as King Hannah manage to capture a lush intensity that really leaves you with your mouth open. Well, at least it does that for us. The band just signed to City Slang and there’s more music coming from them before the year is over and needless to say that’s something to look forward to.
