Harry Nathan is an evolutionary Australian producer, singer and songwriter.
His sound is a fresh take on Bohemian Dream Pop which effortlessly resides between the lines of reality and fantasy, both sonically and visually in his storytelling. He is fundamentally inspired by his desire to explore the intricacies of modern love and human connection.
His new release “Sweet Vanilla Sky” follows on the heels of his debut single, “Rooftops” (released in September 2018), which has won him 14 independent short film awards worldwide, including ‘Best Fantasy Film’ at the Los Angeles Film Awards, ‘Best Music Video’ at the New York Film Awards and the ‘Gold Award’ (overall winner) at the Virgin Spring Cinefest. Rooftops was independently made by Harry Nathan and his best friends, actors Odeya Rush (Ladybird, Dumplin’) and Ryan Lee (Super 8, Goosebumps). Odeya also wrote and directed the video making her directorial debut.
”Sweet Vanilla Sky,” is a delicately intense dedication to love, loss, longing and remembrance. The track is filled with a hypnotic combination of sorrowful, guitar-driven sonics and a well of emotional depth. “The song came together quite quickly, as if I was just a vessel for its birth into the universe,” says
Harry Nathan. “I kept the production super simple, so that the focus would remain on the lyrics and the melancholy guitar and violin sections.”
The lyrics are a testament to Harry Nathan’s effortless ability to understand and speak to the human condition, evoking the multiple stages of grief that comes with heartbreak. Harry shares, “Driving home with a broken heart beneath a thick grey sky, I felt so alone. Breakups are very hard to comprehend, one minute your life revolves around the happiness of another person, the next you are back to figuring it out on your own.”
His story continues on with his debut, EP Songs About Dreams About Her in summer 2019.
