Harts – Peculiar
Harts, where have you been hiding? Well, Australia, I guess, but thank heavens for your upcoming US debut, Smoke Fire Hope Desire – out this summer via the Washington Square Music imprint of Razor & Tie – and the release of your first single, “Peculiar”.
This song hits from the word go with its jazzy guitar riffs, backing horns, and Harts’ vocals and melodies which combine to form the perfect love child of Prince, The Weeknd, and Bruno Mars.
In fact, the late, great Prince Rogers Nelson himself had personally invited him to Paisley Park Studios, proclaiming, “He reminds me of how I was at that age”. High praise, indeed.
Check out the track for yourself below, and OMG is it summer yet?
