Harry Strange continues his climb to pop star status with ‘Dream About’: an exploration of unrequited love from a queer perspective.
As well as being his first of 2021, it is Harry’s first single working alongside multi-instrumentalist Jamie Clarke instead of long-time collaborator Duncan Brookfield, pushing him towards a more layered sound.
Although certainly still inhabiting the niche of low-key yet catchy indie-pop, ‘Dream About’ is more richly layered than previous tracks like ‘I Like You’, with Jamie Clarke’s versatility as a producer shining through on every corner of its instrumentation. Harry’s cadence and rhythm somewhat resemble superstar Ed Sheeran, but his songwriting is far stronger, drawing on personal experience which gives the track a raw and genuine feel, as well as being very catchy.
Harry Strange’s new single is one of rediscovery and reflection, and will certainly be one played as the world slowly returns to normal.
