Hope D Releases Her Powerful Debut Album ‘Clash Of The Substance’

Hope D has really given it her all with a raw and rocking debut album. ‘Clash Of The Substance’ offers its listener a relatable and expressive ride reflecting on past relationships, parties & youth angst.

Some highlights from the album produced by Aidan Hogg & mastered by Joe La Porta include ‘Emerald’, ‘Used To Be’, ‘Happy Hangover’ & ‘Fragile’.

‘Emerald’ documents the process of changing yourself for others. It’s an instant favourite that will have you singing along in no time thanks to the infectious melodies.

‘Used To Be’ is the perfect tune to get your nostalgic juices flowing. Its painfully reflective lyrics perfectly contrast the upbeat music backing it up. The honest confessions will have you hooked right from the start.

‘Happy Hangover’ is your new party anthem. The perfect pick-me-up to get you going. Preaching togetherness, Hope’s vocals will assure you, you’re not the only person feeling lost in a whirlwind of feelings.

Get ready to bawl your eyes out to ‘Fragile’, because the title speaks for itself. It is a moving song covering the hard truths on just how Hope feels about her self-destructive tendencies & emotional damage.

Hope D won’t be held responsible for decisions made under the influence of hormones, heartbreak, alcohol and the other intoxicants which go to war in the arena of her debut LP, ‘Clash Of The Substance’. Armed with a painful honesty, her guitar and a dangerously low balance on her debit card, the queer coming-of-age soundtrack cements her as one of Australia’s most refreshing new voices.
