This is not the first time Hannah Jane Lewis has appeared on Popjustice, but it’s the first time our Music Journalism relating to this particular popstar-in-waiting has been accompanied by moving images in which she’s covered in glitter, so this is progress of sorts.
In response to our official request for information on what she’s playing at, Hannah has sent over the following text: “This song is about keeping your cards close to your chest* and not giving too much of yourself away, so in the video I wanted to find a fun way to play with that — which is where the glitter came in.
