This week’s Song of the Week comes from newcomer Carlie Hanson!
Carlie is a Wisconsin native who’s just recently launched her music career. She is 17 and unsigned. But judging by her debut single, “Why Did You Lie?,” she may not be for much longer.
Written and produced alongside House of Wolf, Dale Anthoni and LELAND, “Why Did You Lie?” is an instantly catchy, power pop production driven by effervescent percussion, a steady electronic pulse, and warm piano lines gently floating in the distance. “Thought I knew what you wanted/ We’ll never know, just how far we could go oh, oh, oh/ No, you can’t say sorry/ You said you’d try, but boy why did you, why did you lie?,” Carlie lusciously coos across the future-bass production, bringing Daya and even some Justin Bieber to mind.
It’s simple, yet sweet, and quite an intriguing start. Carlie clearly has plenty of promise. My eyes and ears are patiently waiting for more… GET FAMILIAR BELOW!
