Over the last few months Australian artist Harry Nathan has been busy working on his next EP, and this week he’s ready to give us its first taste with new single ‘High’.
The story behind the song is just as sweet as the song itself, as Harry tells his tale of falling in love with a girl who moves in across the hall…
“The song is a romanticized daydream about a girl who moved in across the hall. I was living in Los Angeles and I had just picked up a 1982 MT-45 Casiotone keyboard. I fell in love with the sound of it and it inspired me to write the song quite quickly.”
“The majority of the drums come from Roland CR-78 and Roland 505 drum machines. Run through a series of guitar pedals, the Casio keyboard’s signal chain is visible in the song’s artwork; a photo I took on my 1982 Canon AE-1 film camera” – Harry Nathan
