Award-winning Australian blues and roots act, Hussy Hicks have today released a heart-breaking soul ballad, ‘Take A Look Over’, supported by a 15-date national tour.
The new single and tour comes off the back of a big year for the Hussies with tours across Europe and the US; standout performances at Bluesfest and Blues On Broadbeach; and multiple national, regional and local music award nominations.
A preview to Hussy Hicks’ upcoming 6th studio album, ‘Take A Look Over’ is a soulful Annie Lennox-inspired break-up song to end all break-up songs.
“I really wanted to create a song that built into something completely heart wrenching and raw like the Annie Lennox song, Why,” said lead singer, Leesa Gentz.
“It’s about desperately trying to hold on to a relationship that is too far gone and all the pain that is associated with a breakup.
“There is something really moving and cathartic about reflecting on those past experiences that may have been hurtful, but were important in making us who we are today.”
Produced by acclaimed guitarist, Julz Parker, this is the second single from the band’s 2020 album, the first of seven to be fully recorded, engineered and produced by the all-femme force themselves.
A lyrical emotional rollercoaster, ‘Take A Look Over’ harnesses traditional soulful blues with a retro throwback of lush guitar, building and weaving behind Leesa Gentz’ huge power-house soul vocals.
Prolific and well accomplished musicians, Hussy Hicks have honed their sonic dexterity over the past 12 years with six studio albums, multiple industry awards and more than 1,000 live shows, from Australia’s biggest blues, roots and folk festivals to 15 plus international tours, which now sell out across Europe.
Hussy Hicks’ new single ‘Take A Look Over’ is available 27 September on all digital platforms, with a national tour kicking off 22 September, through into December.
