I hear a lot of music of this style every week, and it takes a lot to stand out. But Henry Green's new track "Barcelona" absolutely shines.
With its soft tempo and stripped-back atmosphere, you can really indulge in everything going on throughout this track; there's a lot to love from the delicate clicks and temperate yet crucial guitar notes to the beautiful melody and intimate, introspective lyrics.
While Green has previously received recognition for his cover of MGMT’s “Electric Feel” which was remixed by Kygo, (and currently sits at around 5.5 million plays), this is his first official single. It’s almost hard to believe, considering how refined it sounds, and it certainly means that the Bristol-based teenager has a lot to live up to.
Green will be releasing his debut EP Slow on June 1 via Akira Records.
