Australian singer-songwriter Harry Marshall has just dropped his brand-new enthralling single, High Hopes.
The track – like most of Marshall’s work – is extremely moving yet courageous, forcing the listener to feel the poetic story unfold.
Marshall’s fearless range of vocals are exposed, alongside powerful guitar licks that give an acoustic feel to the track.
High Hopes showcases Marshall’s emotional rollercoaster at a time of rejection.
Throughout the track, there are bursts of anger, and a sense of unfairness and an uncontrollable storm, making it one of his finest and excitable tracks to date.
Marshall says of the new release:
“High Hopes was written after my first meeting with a major label and my first, “No”, in the industry. I was crushed and had to leave London for a while. I later realised my expectations of things at the time were too high, so this song is about keeping yourself grounded in the face of opportunity. That you should never expect anything to happen, without making it happen. Especially in this game!”
After previous success with tracks such as Nowadays and Mountain, we can see why he has garnered support from an ever-growing fanbase.
His debut single back in 2016, Epilogue, peaked in the Top 20 of the Indie Music iTunes Chart and ignited thousands of streams internationally.
Marshall began busking in his hometown and around Australia at the age of 13, moved to Paris to expand his creativity, and finally settled in London – the most rewarding place as he is now exposed to a worldwide audience.
He has supported acts such as Deaf Havana and headlined shows at Camden Assembly, The Lexington, and Omeara.
The 21-year-old is all set to perform at his latest headline show at Dingwalls in Camden, London, on 30th October – his biggest venue yet in the city he now resides in.
Marshall is still yet to realise his debut project, but he will be heading to PX+ Festival in the UK this weekend for the second year in a row, except this year he is headlining Saturday at the farm; so get your dancing shoes on ladies and gents!
