about

Clamouring for creative outlets from an early age, Hana Vu formed musical projects and played shows, though without fully clicking with her teen peers in the local D.I.Y. brat-pack. “I wouldn’t call myself a curmudgeon, but I found it hard to be friends with other young people. Instead, I found two or three key homies, then just did my own thing— socially and in my music”— partly explaining the ambition and ambiance of her first official release How Many Times Have You Driven By.

Written and produced by Vu herself, and mastered by Clay Jones (Modest Mouse, Sunflower Bean) the LP masters the defining balance of bedroom pop: it’s warm, sparse, and whisper-intimate yet at the same time wholly radio-ready.

Track Name: Crying on the Subway
In my dreams im in that grey room

In my chest im feeling dark blue

Take the redline into downtown

Im trying to escape you



Crying on the subway

Cos i remember on that thursday

How everything was different

Oh im always gonna miss it



If i could ever change things

If i could ever forget

I would be no longer living

Oh you know ill always say yes



If you should end up winning

If i should ever regret

I will be no longer winning

Oh you know ill always say yes
Track Name: Cool (feat. Satchy)
Im always waking up too early

Heavy set in my routine

I don't like it when things fall out

I don't like it when they leave me



If i finally understand

How it feels to be noticed

How it feels to be loved then

I can sleep through the morning



Its ok to be at home

Im gonna keep my head down

Cos if i ever see too clearly

Im gonna knock the lights out



Its ok to be alone

Cos im gonna make it happen

Im gonna make it perfect

Better than it has been



Oh im tryna make it cool

And im tryna make it by

Don't tell me that im wrong

Cos aint nobody right



(Satchy)

Say im doing fine but i could be a little better

Maybe im thinkin too much and youre just clearer

And im beggin for your words to be something good ive never heard

Im crying theres something wrong



You don't want to be

Something special to you or me
Track Name: Shallow
Hear me

Follow

Fear me

Shallow

Can i run fast

Fast as loves go



Days are days and days and days away

I run along the fall and fall to fade

Don't forget me don't forget my name

Everyday are days and days the same



Bare me

Scream out

I am

King now

Fear of future

Run the wrong turns
Track Name: 426
Time away i thought i saw you

Walking in place quite

Lost in your ways

They don't understand yet

Lost in the summer goes time



New year

Were runnin soon

I know fear

In the afternoon



Problem solver

Whats the answer

New solutions to

Issues elder

If i go searching for

Better weather

Will i love home

More than i have ever



In my room

No one ever says things like they do

Gone too soon

I don't understand yet what we do



New year

Im livin through

I know fear

In the afternoon
Track Name: Breakfast Square
I wont know

Where you go

If you are lost

Ill carry you home

What we hear

Goes away

From what is real

And what is safe



We are scared to tears

Everyone we fear your fear

And i am scared tears

Cos i cant heal your fears



You would run away

Eastern sky of grey

Im not one to fall

So don't call til youre ok
Track Name: How Many Times Have You Driven By
And i heard

i heard what you said

And i fell

i fell so far

And i tried

I tried so hard

Yea i tried

Didnt get me very far



And i ran

I ran the world

And ive heard

Ive hear it all

And ive tried

Ive tried so hard

Yea ive tried

Doesnt get me very far



And i don't

Don't know the words

But i know

I know what i heard

So don't try

Don't try so hard

Oh don't try

Doesnt get me very far
Track Name: One
Im only one

I lie alone

These days are long

Can i become

Somebody new

Whos arms are strong

There’s nothing two

It’s always one



And im running out of time

Cos she’s not here anymore

Nobody ever calls me

Like they did before

I don't want to believe that were living alone

I don't want to perceive what i hear on the phone



If there is talk

Then i am young

Its not my fault

These things become

What i fear through

What i have lost

There’s nothing two

It’s always one



And im running out of time

Cos she’s not here anymore

Nobody ever calls me

Like they did before

I don't want to believe that were living alone

I don't want to perceive what i hear on the phone
Track Name: Afternoon (feat. Henry Morris)
Ive been walking round lately

Hangin on your cross streets

Thinkin how im never

Knowing what im looking for



Oh im in and out of bad dreams

Tryna see what you mean

Wonder if your waiting

Im tryna make it like before



Ive been thinkin bout you lately

Tryna see if maybe

Im living how i should be

I don't wanna be ignored



Oh im walking round pacing

Thinkin how i might be

If i could ever know what

What im waiting for



In the afternoon

Im waiting round for you



Henry :

Why stay round here

Well i don't really know

Why stay round here

I really wish i could go



Something about you makes me say

Feels like i lost everything i had

What’s the point



Wasting all my time in the evening

Spending all my time like it’s easy
Track Name: Team
I know youre just like me

Weak heart, late start

And i say i can be happy

In this big town if you can get down

I don't wanna be just like you

Walking around with nothing to do

I know i lose

Crying in the morning wishing you were open



What’s wrong

This is my love song

To you who ive known too long

And i wanna go home



Love and emptiness

You’re full of it

Low and behold

We cant be held

You’re just like me

But no ones so young like you

No one is in control

I know everytime i lose



What’s wrong

This is my love song

To you who ive known too long

And i wanna go home

What’s wrong

This is my last song

To you who ive known too long

And i wanna go home

I wanna go home

I wanna go home

Its you that ive known too long and i wanna go home
Track Name: Start
If i could start

If i could move

Somewhere far off

Somewhere brand new

And when i fall

Fall into you

Fall into thoughts

I cant get through



Oh you’re so right

And im so cruel

Unto myself

I don't know you

If i was good

No need to play

I talk myself

Back everyday





Oh i will start



This time of year

Something to prove

Like moving on

Like someone new

Oh i will love

Until im blue

Im moving on

Im something new
