After a monumental 2023 marked by the release of her sophomore album, Wisconsin, as well as several hit singles, Carlie Hanson stopped by the idobi Radio offices in LA to bring our studio to life. Performing her September 2023 single, “Living Feeling Dead,” Hanson transforms the track into an infectious acoustic anthem.

As the track begins, the soft, melodic strums of an acoustic guitar fill the studio space while Hanson commands the room with an aura of authenticity and vulnerability. With the opening lines of “Living Feeling Dead,” she wastes no time in amplifying the raw emotion of the track and projecting it throughout the studio. “I’ve been living feeling dead again,” she croons, her voice echoing with haunting sincerity, “Don’t, don’t tell me that you understand.”

As the stripped-down rendition of the track progresses, Hanson masterfully navigates the delicate balance between fragility and strength, infusing each line with depth and purpose. With lyrics such as “All weekend been in my bed/So tripped out, flip it upside dead/All weekend been in my head/In my head, I’ve been in my head,” her delivery ebbs and flows as she lays bare her innermost struggles with a candidness that is both captivating and relatable. Across the impactful outro, Hanson declares, “If you were ever like me, you would never like me,” capturing the essence of the track in one resounding line.

At the time of the track’s release in September 2023, Hanson shared on Instagram, “I’ve been holding onto this one for a while, so I’m super stoked it’s finally out.”
