Hope D won’t be held responsible for decisions made under the influence of hormones, heartbreak, alcohol and the other intoxicants which go to war in the arena of her debut LP, Clash Of The Substance. Armed with a painful honesty, her guitar and a dangerously low balance on her debit card, the queer coming-of-age soundtrack cements her as one of Australia’s most refreshing new voices. Clash Of The Substance will be available digitally and on vinyl on February 10, with an exclusive pre-sale of purple and teal marble limited edition vinyl, and exclusive merch bundles available to pre-order now via SoundMerch.

Produced by Aidan Hogg and mastered by Joe La Porta, Clash of the Substance features the tempestuous new single Senseless, the instant earworm Emerald, the infectious Hate Goodbyes and the intoxicating Happy Hangover.

In the past year, Hope D performed a national headline tour and took the stage at Groovin The Moo, BIGSOUND, Falls Festival and The Zoo’s 30th Birthday Party, and will perform at Party in the Paddock this February.
