Melbourne multi-intrumentalist Harts seriously impressed those in the know with his debut single ‘All Too Real’, released in the middle of last year. Enough to get himself some decent airplay via Triple J as well as a little attention all the way over at the BBC in Britain.
His fans are understandably excited, therefore, that he’s about to drop his debut EP entitled ‘Offtime’.
Describing its contents, Harts says “I want to create a sound that covers all the bases of the music that has influenced me. A sound that incorporates and makes new all the music I love and cherish that just isn’t around these days. From 60s rock to 70s funk through Disco, then into 80s glam and pop through to 90s grunge, on through to late 90s/early 00s dance, finally shot through with early 2000s indie rock and alternative electro dance, each song is crafted through a broad channel of music, finally landing me at a brand new and unique sound that I hope people will love as much as I love.”
To celebrate the release of the EP (due at retail on March 01), Harts will play live gigs in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. Tickets are on sale now.
