I already reviewed Pio Hartnett in the past but he is back with a new cool single and I want to share my opinion about it.
The interpretative ability of this artist is masterful.
I must say that even how the voice is recorded, so present, helps to make you feel the music of this artist close to you. As I was listening to the new single Grand Prix I felt like Pio Hartnett was with me in my house.
This artist proves to have talent and compositional experience as his songs are always impeccably structured.
The passion Pio Hartnett puts into interpreting, producing, and composing his songs is evident and it is a real pleasure to witness the growth of an artist who surely has a bright future ahead of him.
Grand Prix is Pio Hartnett’s Single Out Now!
Refined and Deep!
Grand Prix is a song Hartnett wrote looking back on a summer when his mother sent him and his sister to extra Irish lessons in his teens. “Being away from my school environment, and what people thought of me in my hometown, was really freeing. I remember this cool girl, and the shocking realization that she could actually like me.”
“Going to a new place, or meeting someone who has this power to inspire something in you – that helps me find something new, and go into another gear. So it’s about that in a way.”
The hopeful yet melancholic track was always intended by Hartnett and his collaborator Zak Higgins for release in the springtime. New beginnings and possibilities are hinted at by a rich arrangement of electric guitars and low thudding toms, coupled with Hartnett’s signature choral vocal layering. It’s another confident piece of songwriting from an artist who seems to have discovered a clarity of who he is artistically, and is backing it up with regular high-calibre releases.
