London-born and Amsterdam-based, British singer and songwriter Harry Lloyd named his project after his original drummer who always failed to show up. Although he loved music from an early age, he became a ski instructor in the French Alps instead. After an accident broke his back, he chose music full-time. Inspired by James Brown, JJ Cale and Leonard Cohen, he debuted with “Roma” in 2017.
Shining a light on the push and pull of love and its effect on mental health, his new single blends inspirational lyrics with an euphoric melody. Taken from his upcoming EP “Trying Not To Try”, this track ascends from a mellow piano to a rousing chorus with a rolling percussion and choral backing singers. And with his impressive, emotive vocal skills, this indie-pop tune is filled with a stirring intensity.
