Riffy, grooving jangle-pop guitars prop up Chris Hart’s soul-infused indie vocals in his latest bitter-sweet alternative hit, Are You There? which navigates the lament left by the cognitive dissonance of people’s intent, actions and words never matching up.
Lyrically, it’s a no holds barred scathing evisceration of flaky objects of our desire. In every other aspect, Are You There? seeks to take the pain away through absorbingly virtuosic riffs, indie disco beats and energetically cathartic choruses with soulful RnB nuances.
More impressively, the Atlanta-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer pulled the radio-ready hit together with his own fair hands. It isn’t every day you encounter an artist with god-tier guitar skills and the ability to build a hooky earworm. His talent discernibly isn’t to be slept on. Get him on your radar.
Are You There? will officially release on March 25th; you can check it out for yourselves via Spotify.
