Norfolk-hailing, London-dwelling, producer, singer & multi-instrumentalist Harry Edwards has shared his latest single “Grow Up” – a new single sonically, but visually the second part of his cinemative video series which began with his debut single “Tame”. Directed by Kalina Pulit, the two part-short film explores isolation, brotherhood, various forms of masculinity, and abstraction. Speaking on the video, Harry explains:
“The video is a continuation of exploring the themeatics relating to isolation, hopelessness and a sense of being surrounded by other people who are also trapped. It was shot entirely on film, the look of which lends itself to the fantastical elements of the project.”
The visuals are an exploration of the music that Harry heard as a child. Kalina distorts a familiar british landscape and scene to accompany Harry’s masterfully crafted music, creating a video akin to a work of art.
After 4 years producing for other artists and working closely with the legendary producer Paul Epworth, Harry is finally making the move to release his own solo work and he’s set to make a huge impression. Talking on “Grow Up”, Harry states:
“The music doesn’t really follow a linear pattern. No sections repeat themselves, which I think was a kind of decision on wanting to break out of certain patterns in life. It was also to further emphasise the abstract nature of dreams and phantasmagoria present in the thread of the album. I was also quite pleased about the drum solo i managed to work in at the end.”
An experienced producer, Harry’s music has been sampled by the likes of 6LACK and Jhene Aiko, Rae Sremmurd and more. He’s spent time in the studio with Usher, Rosie Lowe, FKA Twigs, and Cadenza, to name but a few, and creates a unique, sparse, and quasi-classically arranged sonic; always remaining entirely hypnotic. His skill level enables him to walk the line between pleasure and introspection perfectly, demanding constant attention from his listeners. Harry transcends genres as he experiments with production, haunting vocals and fractured instruments.
