The new ambient folktronica single, “Away” from Melbourne singer songwriter Harp Samuels vulnerably depicts a new reality in the aftermath of losing a loved one. He captures the haze and strangeness of his father’s death and translates that into a whispering electronic ache that flows and floats about a distant, dark space.
"Distorted sounds create a feeling of unease and edginess, contrasting with, to use Harp’s own description, “celestial sounds”, giving a more hopeful, metaphysical tone." [8/8/18]
"The sound is so rich, full, and engrossing that it’s hard to believe that the music and the message is as straightforward as it is. But it is, and that’s the secret to Samuels’ artistry. He’s a disciple of beauty in all its forms, and his records are arrows right to the heart of his fans."
"The start-stop arrangement of Harp Samuels‘ “Wanting” sounds like the distant fragility of Jeff Buckley’s guitar work run through a latter-day Bon Iver-esque mood filter. Soul-inflected vocals, a la Moses Sumney, complete the arrangement."
"All of the emotions Harp felt during those tough times were channeled to create this haunting, ambient-folk song." [7/10/18]
Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine
"An incredible singer/songwriter with seemingly limitless depths." [6/22/2018]
