HEBE Shares New Video For ‘Drink on My Own’

Singer-Songwriter HEBE returns with the brilliant new visual for the new single ‘Drink On My Own’. Taken from the new EP, the first part of her upcoming album ‘Release Resolution’, the 5 track release showcases HEBE’s stunning alternative-folk songwriting and beautiful musical ideas.

The new single ‘Drink On My Own’ showcases some of HEBE’s most affecting and personal work. Organic, warming and gentle, the track opens with a finger picked acoustic guitar under Hebe’s delicate, emotive lead vocal. As the track builds introducing layers of stunning harmonies and strings, the track takes on an expansive depth, emphasising the melancholic, painfully honest nature of the lyricism. 

Speaking on the new video Hebe shares:For the ‘Drink On My Own’ video we used footage drawn from my personal family archive. The images are from a period between 1930 and 1970 and show personal scenes from my family in different places of the world. The footage was shot with a 8mm camera and has been digitised by the Dutch Eye Film Museum. 

When I first witnessed the unique footage, I realised a certain interconnectedness between past, present and future that is magical to me. That feeling captures the essence of this song: an inner world where time and space collide, and where we find ways to relate ourselves to our surroundings.”

Following a trio of increasingly accomplished EP’s released between 2015 and 2020, HEBE introduced herself to the world, fluently adventuring new styles and reaching listeners around the globe. Her intimate live performance of ‘Cards On The Table’ for UK Mahogany Sessions in 2020, next to the likes of Rhye, Birdy and Billie Eilish as well as the placement of latest single ‘Afraid of Being Hurt’ in US TV Series ‘Couples Therapy’ as theme song for their final episode, catapulted her towards building the widespread acclaim and growing fanbase that she possesses today. 

Speaking about the upcoming album as a whole, HEBE shares: “As a young girl I felt life was pretty frightening and for a large part I am still that same girl. Through songwriting and singing I can express myself and feel less alone. This album has been created in two years, where I have dealt with anxiety more than ever, but also learned a lot about myself and life. In a time where the world is in crisis – a heavy mixture of chaos, unjustness, sadness – it is very comforting to listen to and exchange, share and create stories.”

Having garnered upwards of a million streams on Spotify and support from international tastemakers including Impose Magazine, Noctis Magazine, Earmilk, Notion, Vice and Music Week. The international approval culminated in HEBE performing at the prestigious Metropolis Studios and at London’s renowned Camden Assembly. Her music has received UK airplay from the likes of Hoxton Radio, Fubar Radio and Reprezent Radio, whilst back in her own country HEBE has performed on national TV ‘Vrije Geluiden’ and radio shows such as Muziekcafe, 3voor12 and Radio1

Now back with new material HEBE is hoping to reach an even bigger audience.
