Feature Friday: Harts

Harts
Feature by Ellie Garno

This next feature is for Harts and hearts.  “Love is powerful,” Darren Hart of the rock/funk project sings on his new single, “Power,” and it’s what we need right now.  Australians know Harts from the festival circuit, although he recently returned home from a successful tour in Europe—including a slot at PINKPOP in the Netherlands—as well.  “Power” premiered on Triple J last month and has since been added to high rotation; it’s the first track Harts has released since partnering with the Australian indie record label Dew Process (Bernard Fanning, Sarah Blasko, Mumford & Sons).  The winning formula is pop(ish) vocals plus a rock and roll electric guitar.  (Something like the late, great Prince—who by the way said that Hart “reminds me of how I was at that age.”  Nbd.)  Also, lyrics about peace and harmony at the bridge match the funkadelic instrumental vibes.

Stream it and weep.
