Hannah Sumner’s latest single “How To Stop” is one you’ll want to add to your playlist for this year.
The music video, directed by Kevin W. Condon, is stunning and will capture your attention immediately. The shots and choreography throughout are in sync with the rhythm of the indie pop song, which is somehow haunting and sensual at once.
Everything, from the beat to the choreography that matches it, builds in intensity as the song continues and it’s so intriguing to watch.
Her style is similar to the UK’s Jessie Ware, with vocals perfectly suited to a pop or soul sound — or an awesome combination of both.
Based in New York, the musician is currently making her way through the city’s vibrant local music scene.

Hannah’s next EP is called Guesthouse. A release date hasn’t yet been announced.
