For fans of Todd Terje, Client Liaison and Touch Sensitive, make some room in your life for Harry Nathan. The Australian artist closed out last year with the announcement of his upcoming EP, Songs About Falling, of which newest release ‘Last Call’ is the second single.
It’s a sparkling ’80s synth-pop inspired number that evokes imagery of a heartbroken musician in an impassioned music video with hair and fashion not too dissimilar to Nathan’s. As he goes on to explain in the quote below, ‘Last Call’ was inspired by a friend’s break-up, which like many throughout the pandemic surely will have, took place over the phone. We’re also taken to the contemporary vision of the game-changing 2017 film Get Out through the lyric “The sunken place is killin’ me”, which in the context of this song takes on a whole new meaning.
While we don’t yet know which other topics Harry Nathan will be turning to for the remainder of his EP, we have been promised more ’80s drum machines and synthesizers throughout.
“I wrote this song from the perspective of one of my best friends, who was going through a tricky break up. Matters of the heart are never easy, we’ve all been in that situation where a once loving relationship nears its fatal end. We scramble for clarity in the abyss as our world shifts into the emotional unknown.”
