High Hopes

VANNA

Produced by Roy Avital of Tel Aviv based indie-electronic trio Garden City Movement and mastered by Matt Colton (James Blake, Muse, Coldplay), High Hopes is a song about not giving up, even in the darkest, most lonely moments of one’s life. “In the end we must ‘run slow, with high hopes’, be patient, and face the future with optimism.” shares VANNA, “I wanted to let people know that they are not alone and there is always hope.” A gently fingerpicked acoustic guitar sits at the centre of Roy’s production which he combines with VANNA’s unique voice, wafting a piano, strings and other instruments in and out, immersing the listener into the raw emotions of this song.

A music video produced by award-winning independent filmmaker Matan Balalty, set in the beautiful forests of Mount Eitan in Jerusalem, accompanies the release of this single.

High Hopes is the title track of VANNA’s debut EP. Over the last 3 years, VANNA has been working closely with producer Roy Avital on this EP, delivering a delicate fusion of indie electronic, pop, and folk influenced by artists like RY X, Oscar and the Wolf, SYML and Sóley.

“This is such a beautiful arrangement. VANNA has an outstanding voice, that collides into you at first listen. It’s so soft and passionate, not forced. The production and build in this track is powerful, over subtle guitar picking and entwined with subtle synth voices and strings piercing through. The track builds and transforms as VANNA takes you on a journey, exploring the depths of hope even amidst struggle. VANNA’s debut EP is set to release this summer and we are over-the-moon with excitement.” - IMR

“This song made me stop in my tracks, turn off the lights, and turn on fairy lights around my room. That is the physical response an indie electro song should have.” - Unheard Gems

[Verse 1]
At least you’re lost under water
It’s cold with you under the fog
Ohhhh.. I’ll never run away I’ll never leave you here
On your own
Ohhhh.. take me to your safe place
Just get out of the shades
Come home

[Chorus]
Run slow with high hopes
At night
Run slow with high hopes
At night

[Verse 1]
I see you’re lost in slow motion
It’s cold with you under the fog
Ohhhh.. I’ll never run away I’ll never leave you here
On your own
Ohhhh.. take me to your safe place
Just get out of the shades
Come home

[Chorus]
Run slow with high hopes
At night
Run slow with high hopes
At night
