Tanukichan Make Believe

October 20th, 2022

When the pandemic hit, Hannah van Loon turned to the familiar radio pop-rock of her childhood while writing new music as Tanukichan. Referencing artists like 311, The Cranberries, and Tom Petty with main collaborator Toro y Moi’s Chaz Bear, the result is the track “Make Believe” — a bright, driving guitar track with a 90s pop vocal melody that turns itself over and over again, like trying to get to the bottom of a spiraling thought. “Don’t believe in make believe, don’t believe in mysteries, tell you what I want to see. Baby don’t believe in nothing,” she sings. This new work holds onto the buzzy, shoegaze style that defines Tanukichan’s last album, with a deeper dive into new, twinkling melodies that hopefully signals more music to come.
