“It really comes from a place of feeling like you (and your efforts) are never enough, despite trying to be. The entire idea came from a vision I had about a retro fantasy where a guy is chasing a girl who is always making her way around the world with different people, living a life never to be seen but only heard about through the grapevine. Yet, every now and then she’ll come back to town and make these promises to pick back up where things left off with this guy, so he tries and tries to do what he can each time, never quite figuring out that it’s all just for nothing”, Hvnnibvl said of the song.
Born in Buffalo as John Jacob Hannibal V, Hvnnibvl is a child of divorce who fulfilled his lack of togetherness through music, honing his skills since 12. He officially launched his career in 2014 meeting great success on Spotify and Apple Music, with additional support from Trap Nation, CLASH and even Universal Music Group, while his debut EP Reasonably, Relative now counts over 600K streams. Having previously opened for Lil Uzi Vert, blackbear, Poppy and THEY. amongst others, and recently performed for the Live Nation’s Breaking Sound event, Hvnnibvl is definitely energizing the scene, one catchy banger at a time.
