Melbourne-based funkateer Harts today released his third single “Angels Walk Below”, and we are excited to bring you a first-listen on Fred Perry Subculture!
“Angels Walk Below” is a timeless funk/pop/rock tune that further cements Harts as the upcoming rising star that he is, and a musical force to be reckoned with. Featuring funky rhythms, catchy falsetto melodies, and that signature Harts guitar work, “Angels Walk Below” was written, performed, recorded, produced & mixed by Harts himself in his bedroom studio. Lyrically, the song follows one of the strongest themes present on his forthcoming album; dealing with uncertainty.
Harts is readying his debut album for release after returning from Minneapolis where he spent time jamming with Prince at Paisley Park Studios, receiving an invitation from Prince himself.
The first two singles off the album, “Leavn It All Behind” and “Lovers In Bloom,” landed radio play worldwide. In Australia on Triple J and Unearthed, in the UK on BBC 6 and Amazing Radio, US on College Radio, and Europe on Radio 3 Spain and France Inter Radio. The tracks also received a number of blog features (reaching #30 on Hype Machine), and a TV sync on French Late Night program “Le Grand Journal”.
Harts also recently caught the attention of legendary music producer, Quincy Jones and collected even more global recognition as previous single “Lovers In Bloom” was tweeted out by Questlove of The Roots.
Harts will be touring the record in Australia as well as heading back to the US to work with Nick Littlemore (Empire Of The Sun, Pnau) on a new upcoming project later in the year.
