Harts x GTM
In anticipation of his forthcoming album due for release in August 2016, Harts releases his second single “Peculiar” on March 4th 2016. Already gearing up for a big year, announcements for Groovin' The Moo, Bluesfest 2016, and SxSW 2016, “Peculiar” follow up a sold out Single Launch Tour for “All Rise (Play It Cool)”. The new single showcases Harts’ soaring melodies to match his guitar artistry. He blends RnB influences with his signature riffs and sparkling synths, settling into a laid back groove and an unforgettable chorus.
The track premiered on triple j 24.02.2016 - http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/musicnews/s4412098.htm
"One man funk rock machine Harts is working on a new full length-album, his second, and has given us another early preview of the record in the shape of 'Peculiar'.
Premiered on triple j earlier today ahead of its 4 March release, the track follows on from lead single, 'All Rise (Play It Cool)' and both tracks will feature on the follow-up to Harts' 2014 debut album Daydreamer, due later this year.
The Melbourne synth-n-riff-meister says the track was first road-tested on tour last year but recorded and finished in his home studio just last week.
'I was jamming in my bedroom studio with a guitar and a looper, just experimenting with chords and making grooves and rhythms. I formed the main progression loop and the song took off quickly from there,' Harts tells triple j.
'I was kinda in a mood of questioning everything that day; in a mind set of not being able to see things for what they actually are. I think that reflected in the lyrics and the speed that everything came together.'"
