HANA has made a name for herself with live performances, touring with Purity Ring and Shamir in North America last year, and joining Grimes on her Acid Reign tour of Europe. Now, the synth loving LA pop star is set to make further waves with her self-titled debut EP coming out on 25 March and a brand new video for debut single Clay, directed by Lorraine Nicholson.

Described by Lorde as, "too beautiful and sparkling for words," Clay is a shimmering sad girl anthem with sparse beats and clicks that build to cymbals and claps. Floating in a bath of milky blue-grey water, HANA sings, "It's 4 in the morning, I fighting my own / You know you never said sorry, for all that you stole," before hands emerge to drag her under.

HANA will support Grimes on her UK tour, with two headline solo shows in London on 17 March at Vice's Old Blue Last venue and 18 March at the Waiting Room.
