Harry Strange’s debut single “Back Around”, released in 2017, serves as a stunning showcase for his ability to effortlessly intertwine his stunning voice with affecting, introspective lyricism to create truly memorizing music. His following tracks “Heaven Knows” and “Signs” saw him innovate and excite by expanding his sonic horizons, through drawing upon more electronic influences, to craft a sound that’s distinctly his own.
EUPHORIA today premieres Harry Strange’s new track “Sober”, the first single from his upcoming debut EP Crying At The Party. With “Sober”, Harry Strange ventures further into alt-pop territory with endlessly enthralling production while keeping his vividly affecting lyricism firmly at the forefront of his work. The track feels deeply rooted in the agonizing authenticity of human emotion, conveying bewilderment and disillusionment in a beautifully succinct way. The juxtaposition of spirited production and melancholic lyricism seemingly acknowledges the distressingly paralysing intensity of emotional duplicity, poignantly recognising the intriguing mix despondent dejection and elated exuberance
Speaking of the track, Harry Strange shared, “Sober is the opening track, and the first song to be released off my upcoming EP Crying At The Party. The EP is set over the space of a single house party. It’s a collection of thoughts, emotions and interactions all encapsulated within one timeframe.”
He continued “’Sober’ is a classic case of not being noticed by the one person you want to be noticed by. I really wanted the song to encapsulate this feeling of having a shit time whilst being surrounded by people who are loving life resulting in this feeling of happiness but also sadness? I think this ability to swing from two opposing emotions is such an interesting dynamic especially when it comes to a drinking culture and this track and the EP as a whole really tries to explore and examine both of these states.”
