'Under The City Lights': hidingthehurt shares his final project under the moniker

"I have decided after long consideration to wind down the hidingthehurt chapter of my musical career..."

UK hyperpop trailblazer hidingthehurt shares his new EP 'Under The City Lights', announcing it'll be his final project under the hidingthehurt moniker. 

Back in February, the 20-year-old Brit teased the project by putting out 'First Rate Education', a single that grapples with the expectations that come with a good education. Now releasing the full body of work, the producer/artist reveals that it's a swan song. 

Addressing his fans in a statement on Instagram, hidingthehurt writes: "As some of you may have noticed recently, I haven’t been as active on this account and haven’t engaged with you guys on a level previous to this. This is for one main reason and that reason being that I have decided after long consideration to wind down the hidingthehurt chapter of my musical career. I started this expression of art back in 2020 and have since achieved things from my bedroom I could only have dreamed of. 

"That being said however, I am a very different person to who I was back then and I find the style of music I’m making currently to be one that does not align with myself anymore. This project was a great expression of angst and personal feelings that I intended to express through must yet I do not find myself having the thoughts and feelings I did back then that inspired me to this craft. I have always been about authenticity and thus I do not feel like it would be an accurate representation of my life to keep making songs through this artistry."

"This summer I will embark on a series of shows and festivals which I cannot wait to announce and so I implore you to come watch as it will be the last time you will ever hear these songs live! I also want to stress that I WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE MUSIC ON ANOTHER ACCOUNT and I am so excited to share that craft with you soon. In the meantime, I present you with my final body of work under the hidingthehurt moniker: Under The City Lights."
