Harvey Jay Dodgson is back today to remind you why he’s (deservedly) become one of the UK’s most hyped indie newcomers.
‘Alligator’ is taken from the artist’s new EP of the same name (out now), and showcases a bold and cinematic indie-rock sound that is immediately arresting from the moment you press play. In one word, this record is simply epic, and deserves a listen.
The release of the EP marks the start of a busy season for Harvey, who has just announced that he will be performing at the iconic Glastonbury Festival in June.
Dodgson has received praise from industry heavyweights as respected as BBC Radio 1, Notion, Wonderland and Clash magazines, while also garnering more than 250k catalogue streams to date on Spotify alone.
Indie prodigy Harvey Jay Dodgson unveils stunning new single ‘Oxygen’, alongside the release of his debut EP of the same name.
Intensely captivating and atmospheric, the song serves as a perfect example of British alternative music at its grandest and most epic.
“With big sub basses, gospel backing vocals, strings and a huge final chorus, ‘Oxygen’ wraps up ‘chapter one’ of my released songs written from the ages fifteen to eighteen. A song to put you in the zone. Breathe with me and connect with my emotion as you listen to the song I have been anticipating for the longest, ‘Oxygen’.”
Freshly tipped by This Feeling and XS Manchester as One To Watch in 2022, singer-songwriter Harvey Jay Dodgson releases his latest single ‘For the Love Of It’, further showcasing this talent’s artistry in blending raw lyrics with driving instrumentation.
“‘For The Love Of It’ is a statement about how music should be created and played … for the love of it. Not following a trend, being able to connect with others, not forcing the art for the primary motive of money. The production portrays this. Playful melodies, groups of chanting teens, rough around the edges as a whole – a song to shout out together with your mates. My painting of why I make music for the love of it.’’
Debut EP ‘Oxygen’ is due for release on 29th April 2022.
