Indeed, Hart is performing no miracles here, delivering folk pop that’s familiar if a little unfashionable: “I’m foolish and fast-talkin’,” he reveals in Not Mine For The Asking; “I long to just fit in.” There’s a gentle, Simon & Garfunkel-like simplicity to his work, which is out of step with the complicated modern electro-pop world.
But his songs are strong, with exquisite harmonies, reminding of Josh Pyke and Augie March. Recommended.
The Narrow Corner is out Feb 2 via Universal.
