UK born NZ raised singer/songwriter Harry Parsons has just released his beautiful new single 'Real'.
Parsons collaborated with producer Carlos Barnett, who helped give the song a new sonic direction, creating a polished, confident, electro pop ballad.
'Real' begins with the pathos of sparse piano and a dense beat, building in a series of beautiful melodic hooks to the chorus's crescendo, enveloped in a haze of high-pitched vocals.
"I wrote the song as I was coming out of quite a low point in my life, full of self doubt and anxiety about the future and where I was headed." says Parsons. "I guess the song reflects hope, and the idea that everything could be okay just let life run it's course. It's also about how we change as people through our experiences, and that continues throughout our lives."
Parsons celebrates the song's unveiling with a 'Real' Single Release Show at Galatos on April 5th. Tickets available now from www.undertheradar.co.nz
'Real' is now available from iTunes, Spotify and all good digital outlets.
