During the early years of his career, Darren Hart, better known as Harts, was compared to Prince. While there are certain aspects of his sound that are Prince-like, the Melbourne artist has well and truly pushed past those similarities, with latest single "Power" a testament to that.
"Power" is uplifting rock number with Harts singing about "giving power to us all" over a razor sharp guitar riff. The track builds to a crescendo of orchestral harmonies as the guitar gives way to driving percussion, strings and the piano.
Along with first single, "Peculiar," Harts' new album Smoke Fire Hope Desire is shaping up as one of the better releases in the latter half of 2016.
