Artwork for 'Crispy'

Released on December 21st, 'Crispy' takes listeners on a compelling journey through indie rock, electronic sophistication, and folk nuances, wrapped in an unexpected layer of funk.

Harry Dean Lewis brings a refreshing authenticity to the music scene with his latest track, 'Crispy'. Released on 21st December, this song is a compelling exploration into the depths of perceived reality, inviting listeners to question and uncover the hidden truths of our existence.

The musical composition of 'Crispy' is a testament to Lewis's versatility as an artist. The track effortlessly melds indie rock vibes with a touch of electronic sophistication and a folk-inspired undertone. There's an overriding funkiness within the production that will blow listeners away. The accompanying original video is a visual feast, perfectly aligning with the song's thematic richness and offering a narrative that extends beyond mere entertainment.

Lewis's lyrics in 'Crispy' are a poignant reflection on the dichotomies of our times. He critiques the curated facades of social media and the often superficial nature of news, urging us to look beyond what is readily presented. The song serves as a reminder to delve into our personal stories, embracing the light and shadows within.

The video is well produced, taking the audience through a contemplative dialogue between a man and a bartender - usually the most philosophical of times. Then taking us through to the next room, listeners find a full band out back before further falling down the rabbit hole into a group of singers at what looks like a wake. Back through to the main bar, a mysterious man in a hat begins to type on a typewriter and hands the paper to the main man. Shocked, he runs out, paper in hand. He loops through time and suddenly becomes the keys player in the band he saw - and he's the one in the hat. It watches like A Christmas Carol in the digital age. I love it.

Musically, 'Crispy' is composed with a keen attention to detail, featuring a blend of harmonious bass lines, sharp guitar melodies, and the distinctive rawness of Lewis's voice. The production beautifully balances refinement and natural sound, allowing the song's dynamic core to resonate with listeners.

'Crispy' is one of those songs that just hit you regardless of your preferred music style. It's catchy, and fun but equally serious in its narrative. So, what's the verdict? Well, I love it. It's full of unexpected elements which shouldn't work on paper but they so do! The song has everything and the visuals do too. What's not to love?
