I’ve been heavily looking forward to Harry Nathan’s new EP and it has totally transcended my expectations. It’s such an expertly woven batch of songs that feel like they all fit into the same explosive universe where catchy melodies and attentive intricacies reign supreme. The opener “Rooftops” starts things off on a high note with a tropical groove, singles “Fool For Your Love” and “Vanilla Sky” sound even better in the context of the record, “Timeless Dream” is an absolutely stunning ambient-esque ballad of an instrumental, and “Blue Eyed Girl” is a gorgeous closer that starts small before swelling up into an anthemic swan song. This EP is truly packed with highlights and I can’t recommend enough to just sit down and absorb it from front to back.
I don’t have a super insightful personal anecdote to dive into today. I just want to say that I’m in a really good place right now and music like Harry Nathan’s accentuates that feeling, like the soundtrack to a movie that’s momentarily transcended conflict or disarray and everything just feels right. I drove over a massive bridge last night, looked up at a mountain range right as the song’s chorus kicked, and I couldn’t help but laugh out loud and smile. It was a moment that affirmed my place of love and light in the universe and I look forward to continuing to cherish this ongoing experience.
