Hey guys! It has been a while, but I went kinda MIA during my first days in Bali, so - yeah... hello from this beautiful island. Life is good, surf is awesome and this place has just so much to offer, I submerged into it.
However, when I woke up this morning, I remember how excited and obsessed I was with Henry Green's "Shift / Without You" when it first got send to me back in February. Since the track wasn't officially released yet, I had to wait for the date, but then... yes, life happened. Anyways. I fell in love with the sound of the Bristol-based producers pretty much from the second I realized how beautifully smooth the interplay between vocals and instrumental is. The song actually kicks in with a focus on the vocals, but it eventually spans over and Henry's production skills truly shine throughout the rest of the composition. After numerous re-plays, the song still gives me goosebumps and a feeling of beautiful melancholia.
When it comes to the release, the Bristol-based artist shares:
We're constantly moving in some manner, at some pace... whether its physically or emotionally. This year was all about progression and change for me, so I found myself constantly gravitating towards that idea of movement in my lyrics. 'Shift' was a word that just kept reappearing when writing the tracks, whether I was describing the structures of the tracks, the instrumentation/arrangement and obviously, the lyrics.
I wanted to exhibit a feeling of constant movement in the album and that idea that every element is constantly shifting, but at a variety of paces.
The artist another tune called "Without You" which you can stream below.
Both songs will be part of Henry's his debut album Shift, out March 30 via Akira Records. Stay tuned for more! Now it's time to me to wait out the rain while listening to this beauty and then hit the water in a desperate hope to catch some waves.
