About the tour

King Hannah’s new album “Big Swimmer” is out now on City Slang!

On their first tour of the US, Liverpool indie rock duo King Hannah, composed of Hannah Merrick and Craig Whittle, could hardly believe where their debut record, I’m Not Sorry, I Was Just Being Me, had taken them. Much of the sophomore record, Big Swimmer, reflects on stories from their travels, as the duo shared the stage with Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, and festivals throughout Europe and North America. Particularly in America, Merrick and Whittle found themselves looking through their tour van window, allowing for inspiration for their storytelling to come pouring in.

Wanting to capture the energy from the live shows of their debut tours, Merrick and Whittle went to producer and engineer Ali Chant (Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey, Perfume Genius). In this space, they blended the richness and heart of the 70’s with the simmering noise of the 90’s.

Big Swimmer finds King Hannah on the other side of their first act with a newfound understanding of their sound, their strengths, their gratitude, and their vision for the future of the band’s music. The album leaves your hairs standing on the back of your neck, between the at times prickly, and often heartening imagery of its storytelling.
