HANNIE (feat. Carys Selvey) - Cosmic Bound

Introducing HANNIE, otherwise known as the songwriting duo comprised of multi-instrumentalists Hannah Koppenburg and Annie Wagstaff, who have today released their debut single called "Cosmic Bound". Featuring newcomer Carys Selvey, "Cosmic Bound" is an instantly infectious gem pairing funk driven guitars and keys with pure pop melodies while showcasing the girls' ability to write a mean tune. Much like Disclosure and Clean Bandit, HANNIE write and co-produce all their own music, handpicking different vocalists to collaborate with for each track.

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.

When speaking of their project, HANNIE said:

"Your gender should never get in the way of doing what you love and working hard. It's weird but there doesn't seem to be anyone doing what we are doing, which we find really exciting. We want to be a step towards putting more girls, as musicians, in the music industry. This is the most fun we've ever had, and can’t wait to share these tunes with everyone."
