Hoodlem has released her anticipated new single “Never Said Goodbye”, an elcetro pop gem that shimmers with mesmerizing synths, which explores the reality of a long-distance relationship that never had closure.
Speaking about her new single, Hoodlem says today, “I wanted to write a song that makes you want to dance and want to cry all at once. Gab (Japanese Wallpaper) and I jumped in the studio to hang out and started talking about long distance relationships and life in general and this song fell out. We really clicked on the theme and tone of the song and got a bit wavy with synths - along with help from our friend Alice Ivy. I think afterwards we went for dumplings and that was that”.
Hoodlem is one of Australia’s most promising new artists, and is a front runner of experimental soul, pop and future R&B.
Rising to popularity after the release of her globally acclaimed single “Old Friend”, Hoodlem has received praise by media outlets such as The FADER and Nylon for her captivating production and alluring vocals. In 2017 her latest single ‘Teenager’ premiered on BBC Radio 1Xtra, she performed in Berlin with Majestic Casual and her Saint WKND collaboration “Golden” has reached over 4 million streams on Spotify.
Hoodlem has recently collaborated with Hermitude and now teams up with Japanese Wall and Alice Ivy on “Never Said Goodbye”, releasing 23rd August.
