Premiere: Hazlett - 'Fireworks' (Live)
HAZLETT strips ‘Fireworks’ back to its beautiful bones in his emotive live performance video.
On the ideas behind the live performance video HAZLETT tells us , “I think I'll always be a little old school at heart because unless a song sounds good just on guitar I'm never happy. Makes you feel uncomfortable but honest when it’s just you and some chords. So as fun as experimenting with sounds on the new EP was, stripping down ‘Fireworks’ brought back all the feels of when I originally wrote it. So I wanted to play in a space that made me feel the same, where everything’s familiar but out of place and vulnerable. Basketball has always been my sanctuary to get away from everything so I thought what better way to make me feel uncomfortable than bringing some bad old feelings into my happy place. You can’t hide them in big open, abandoned spaces. The song touches everything before it comes back to hit you in the face.”
