By sharing “First World Problems”, Brisbane’s artist Hazlett proves that he has made the right decision: he is too talented to not remain a touring musician and ghostwriter.
A year ago, we discovered Hazlett on SoundCloud. The sensitive Brisbane’s artist who was at that time a touring musician and a ghostwriter then kind of disappeared. Today, we read that he locked himself in a Stockholm studio after a last minute long-haul flight to Sweden. Songwriting has always been a kind of therapy for the artist so we suppose that this isolation had a beneficial impact on him. What we know is that he has recently decided to jump ahead and he can be proud of his first original offering as Hazlett: “First World Problem”. On this single, which was co-produced with J. Grant, the introvert artist shares some thoughts about communication in our modern times. He detailed:
“First World Problem” is a smart mix of indie pop and folk music and it shines thanks to its remarkable arrangements. You can hear that Hazlett is a musician and also a technician. It would have been sad to let him wander doing drunk karaokes in New York City.
