British Australian artist Harry Heart explores the exhilarating rollercoaster of young love on his new dance-infused, indie rock fire-cracker ‘Kamikaze’
Harry Heart – Kamikaze
Harry’s latest single Kamikaze was mixed by Kennie Takahashi (The Black Keys, U2, Danger Mouse). The track looks at a couple feeling unified but lonely, holding each other up and bringing each other down. Heart explains. “You take the good moments with the bad”.
“2020 wasn’t all doom and gloom for me, I kept busy, but it did test me, and this song feels like a personal triumph over the year we’re all ready to forget”. Harry Heart
Kamikaze fizzes and brims with nervous energy and exhilaration, recalling the jubilant and strident sounds of The Maccabees at their early best.
Kamikaze is out now on Harry Heart’s independent label Kinda Grizzly.
