Words: Saam Das
I'm pretty vehemently against the tired "mystery" approach to introducing new artists, although Harry Shadow has at least some sort of a tangible link to reality - recruiting London singer CHI to feature on his/her debut effort, 'Flicker'. Listen to the moody number below.
There's a sense of quiet reflection in 'Flicker', which builds into something more pressing, taking full advantage of CHI's arresting vocals. The result is evocative of the atmosphere of London Grammar and the electro-pop of VAULTS. And while I'm here, I'm going to guess that Harry Shadow = record producer Harry Tarlton. Regardless of the personnel involved, it's an impressive start.
