From her bio: “Hana Maria, the daughter of a Catholic priest, was born during a hurricane...” We’re intrigued. The New Zealand-born, England-based singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist fronts the four-piece ass-kickers Hana Piranha. Hana prominently and frequently displays her chops as a violinist, which spikes the dramatics and gothic overtones that span throughout the music, while also channelling Eastern influences. “I Wanna Leave” is a razor blade, while “Azure,” “Lorelai” and most others are downtempo and hooky, with a softer edge. Hana Piranha are linked with Not Saints, a sober recovery record label, supporting artists battling addiction.
