When you get away from the home-town drama and away from reputations and childhood memories, the freeing sensation of being renewed is tangible. Imagine, then, meeting a girl and for the first time in your life, she might actually like you. The mind goes into formula one mode with racing thoughts and driving emotions roaring around the neural circuitry. That's exactly what Pio Hartnett has written about with his smooth and easy-going alternative-rock sound. This is his second single, to be found on the forthcoming EP this summer, which hit all streaming sites on Friday 8th April.
Dainty emotive vocals begin as angelic guitar notes pluck the song into existence. The words begin, synaesthesia and groove repel the dreary feelings as an uplifting swerve carries us along for the ride. Drums build up with progressive bars, hand instruments and beating skins merge with a layering of evocative patterns. Pio Hartnett delivers the lyrics with absolute clarity, the emotional depth of the music conjures like clockwork as the lines fit to the melodious framework self-penned and meant to draw us closer in.
