Harry Nathan – Alright

Harry Nathan is a personal favorite who always one-ups his material, so it’s expected that he’d return with his best work yet. “Alright” is a self-proclaimed lofi disco cut that feels like Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories era dissolved into a distant transmission, coming from late 20th century radio waves making their way into 2019. It’s subtly catchy, hooking into the base of your brain and pulling you into the organic flow. The lyrics are fittingly reassuring for a song that sounds like audible comfort, wrapping you in its warm embrace and never letting go. “Alright” has been the perfect start to my Monday morning and I highly recommend that you welcome it into your early aughts too.

Everything is going to be alright. Everything in life is going well on the surface, but I’ve still managed to feel a bit lethargic and down. That being said, I know that the weight is temporary and brighter times are always ahead. I don’t feel trapped in a permanent state like I used to in the past. Our bodies, minds, and existence as a whole are constantly shifting – we live in a dynamic universe where expansion moves on into infinity. That gives me the reassurance I need to know that there’s always something positive coming next. It also helps me counteract that feeling of lethargy during the present and practice contrary action to making my present moment as positive as possible.
