David Harks is a name that should be familiar to regular patrons of the site.
The British-born, Berlin-based artist and singer has been the recipient of much deserved lavish praise for his work with Safetalk, varying collaborative projects and of course, his solo work.
It is the latter that concerns us on this occasion, more specifically Harks’ new solo single ‘Avalon’ – recorded with Pete Cattermoul from Teleman, it is a soft, psychedelic indie/synthpop song. It shifts along a steady beat, punctuated by a grooving bass and an enchanting combination of airy synths, piano loops and flourishes of electronics creating a chilled, atmospheric soul soothing sound. At points both melancholic and hopeful, Harks’ his transcendent voice conveys a strength in fragility and the pièce de résistance of this magnificent, incredibly chill indie-electro delight. You’ll be all the better for letting this wee gem into you life, guaranteed!
