Nowadays, it seems as if the whole YouTube and blogosphere route to fame is hoary and overdone. But, every once in a while, someone emerges out of the deep depths of the Internet and manages to create some magic. Our latest find? Harrison Brome, an 19-year-old Vancouver artist whose debut, “Fill Your Brains,” was one of the cleanest experimental, genre-hopping tracks we’ve heard in a while.
His latest song, “Midnight Island,” is no exception. With a more upbeat tempo, honey vocals, and a light dose of synth, the track is vaguely reminiscent of The Weeknd, and is the perfect hazy, sensual addition to any and every situation, from your daily meditation session to your late-night rooftop hangout.
″‘Midnight Island’ is reminiscent of my childhood and how I dreamt of finding a better place,” says Brome, who struggled with dyslexia. “The video allows viewers to observe the beautiful surroundings of an anonymous landscape through which our character is traveling. In search of serenity, he finds himself at the one place that seems to keep him content; the tree of dreams.”
