Hailing from Blackpool, Harrison Rimmer’s gruff, passionate sounds have resonated with many over the years, with core influences ranging from Frank Turner to Springsteen via Nirvana. This new stuff, however, is a little more pop-orientated and takes its direction from the sweeter, more romantic sensibilities of Savage Garden and the heart-on-sleeve anthemic quality of Manchester Orchestra.
Of the track’s inspirations, Rimmer comments: “‘Old Heart’ is a track that emerged earlier in March 2018. This song is dedicated to anyone who is looking to have fun, who’s in a long distance relationship or anyone who just wants to let it all go.”
Rimmer adds that the song definitely served to challenge him as a songwriter and that he feels refreshed, and excited about the future: “At the time of writing this I was listening to a lot of Keith Urban, Johnny Cash, Eels and Tracey Chapman. I wanted to do a track that combined pop, and rock and creates a wall of sound that had some colorful graffiti on it.”
‘Old Heart’ is set for release on October 19 (pre-orders begin on September 13) and is taken from an as-yet-untitled album, due for release in 2019.
