Perth singer-songwriter Hector Morlet has blessed us with his shimmering new single, Surprise!. The retro lo-fi track brings his captivating melodies to the track, which is sure to get you grooving along.
Morlet effortlessly fuses together sonic threads of disco and bedroom pop, bringing nostalgic sounds into a contemporary landscape. Morlet's vocals float above a funky bass line, sleek piano and swirling synths, mesmerising listeners with his dulcet tones.
Speaking of the track, the musician details: “When you’re lucky enough to stumble upon love, don’t forget to cherish how unlikely it can be. After gradually getting to know my partner, I was struck with bewilderment. How did it happen like that? It was a night like any other but its significance has grown with time; it’s when she walked out of the blue and into my life. In Surprise!, I wanted to explain my stunned reaction to the memory of our meeting. Much later, when she had left home to visit her mum in her hometown, she called me and told me that while she was sleeping, a possum had dropped down her chimney and landed in her (unlit) fireplace. I immediately thought: 'that’s you!' She had dropped into my life to the same surprise - but unlike the possum, she is welcome to stay.”
