As the daughter of Terrie Hessels – guitarist of the avant-garde improv-punk band The Ex – Lena was introduced to life on the road at an early age. Lena has taken her time to find her own sound; fusing the experimental side of her family with her love of pop music. my baby’s belly is the first single to be taken from her upcoming sophomore EP, due for release later this year. Lena’s next release is a subtle introduction to a new sense of vulnerability, showcasing her ability to create captivating minimalist pop that is irresistibly dreamy.
