Hanssøn's debut release "Always High" delivers waves of dream pop vibes with subtle 90s synth stylings. The song showcases a backdrop of reverie led by clear vocals and explores a romance disillusioned by a disconnected lover who prefers getting high; Hanssøn cleverly disguises the lyrics in a dreamlike melody.

"Always High" is a very promising start for the New York-based indie singer-songwriter.

Ego is firmly rooted in Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of the ego, the id and the superego ⎯⎯ interactive agents of mental perceptions and capacity. Initially, the ego examined the reality principle, a mechanism mediating between the id and reality, tempering expectations rather than succumbing to emotional triggers. With time, the definition has evolved quite significantly, while continuing to be grounded in Freud’s studies. Today, it signifies someone’s drunken relationship with themselves, resulting in distortion of the real world and relationships and entangling them in some cosmic fantasy. Alternative pop singer-songwriter Hanssøn delivers the receipts on a  former lover who buckled to self-centered enslavement. “Always High” employs addiction as a gateway to selfishness and its aftereffects.


You’ve heard of Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High),” now get ready for Hanssøn’s “Always High,” essentially the same song in reverse. Where our Swedish sweetheart was self-medicating in the bathroom on her breakout hit, this new NYC-via-Australia pop singer is rolling her eyes at her self-centered love interest over some retro pop beats. Hanssøn describes the track as “wanting to love someone who is too consumed with themselves to love you back. They’re ‘high’ on themselves, ego-tripping, just on a different wave length, it’s not really about drugs, but more missing that connection, or seeing that they’re disconnected with what’s going on around them.” It’s the first glimpse at her forthcoming EP Colours of the Fall, due out this August, and since the song’s all about fuckboys testing your patience, you know Hanssøn not about to waste four minutes and 17 seconds of your life.
