Hannah Stow Reveals Emotional New Single, ‘In The Dark’

Boorloo/Perth alt pop artist Hannah Stow is back with a bang with her latest single, In The Dark, giving fans a sneak peek into her forthcoming EP, Sidelined, set to release in September. Known for her emotionally charged voice and distinct Australian delivery, Hannah has been capturing hearts with her raw, vulnerable lyrics since her debut in 2020.

In The Dark stands out with its stripped-back, minimalistic approach, featuring warm electric guitar tones that let Hannah’s expressive vocals take centre stage. The song was born from a place of deep loneliness, which Hannah powerfully transforms into a relatable and touching piece. Reflecting on the inspiration behind the track, Hannah shares how a simple yet poignant comment from a close friend sparked the song’s creation, providing a raw and genuine insight into her emotional state at the time.

“I wrote ‘In The Dark’ when I was in a terrible place. It was four chords and a sense of loneliness I thought I’d never shake. Someone close to me came up to me and asked me how I was doing, and I said, ‘Well I don’t feel so lonely with you in the dark’ and I thought that concept was raw, and I knew I had to write about it.”- Hannah Stow.

The single also comes with an intimate music video that perfectly matches the song’s authentic vibe. It’s warm colour palette and one-on-one feel draw viewers into the personal nature of the track, making it a truly immersive experience.

With In The Dark, Hannah Stow delivers a heartfelt anthem that promises to resonate with anyone who’s ever felt alone. As we eagerly await the release of her debut EP Sidelined, this single sets the tone for what’s to come and reaffirms Hannah’s place in the Australian scene.
