After recently unveiling first cut ‘Flowers (The Retaliation)’ from his forthcoming sophomore EP (due September 2016), Sydney-based indie-rock singer / songwriter, Harry Heart, has just revealed the second snippet of the record in brand new single ‘Baby Calm Down’.
Recorded at Sydney’s REC Studios, ‘Baby Calm Down’ pays homage to late 90’s and early 2000’s indie-rock nostalgia, taking cues from the likes of Bloc Party, The Arctic Monkeys and Death Cab For Cutie, whilst blending more modern sounds likened to The Trouble In Templeton and Local Natives.
Heart describes the creative process behind the track -
“Baby Calm Down is really a track about frustration. About being a twenty-something year old male in a world of Mark Zuckerberg’s and Justin Bieber’s, where everyone’s a bloody rock star- no one cares about the lovers and thinkers of the world. Emotions are discouraged and abrasiveness championed. Baby Calm Down is about taking that frustration out on those you love. It was one of those songs where I had about six verses and had to choose the best ones - I had a lot to say.”
Hearts previous singles and debut EP ‘Bodensee and Other False Stories’ received strong support via worldwide blogs, community radio and triple j. The young songsmith has also supported the likes of mainstay Australian acts Glass Towers and The Delta Riggs.
In the coming weeks Heart will also be revealing an accompanying music video.
‘Baby Calm Down’ is now available to stream via Soundcloud
