Bob Hansen has been a staple of the Pacific Northwest, as both Hanssen and Jacob London, for quite some time now. It's under Hanssen, however, that the Seattle artist is most known, releasing a lauded debut album on Hush Hush in 2014, amongst various other singles and EPs.
Hanssen's sophomore album, Transit, is an emotionally charged personal journey through gender, art, structure, and a whole host of beautifully crafted sounds. It lays bare an artist "discovering their personal identity and following their inner truth," whilst subtly inviting the listener along for the ride. From ambient-like prose to vocal-led emotive house, Transit's tracks are swirling sentiments straight from Hanssen's core.
Released July 8 via Seattle's Hush Hush, Transit can be purchased here, with lead track "Coconut Palm Forest" (feat. Piper Davis), a gorgeous deep-house outing, available as a free download via WeTransfer below.
