Listen to the track now, exclusively on MILKY!
Melbourne singer-songwriter and producer Tommy Harris is gearing up to drop his new single, Florence. If you’re like us and can’t wait, listen to the track right here on MILKY before its release!
Conceptually, Harris draws on his own personal experiences, navigating the complexities of adulthood and reflecting on the ups and downs of relationships, life changes and the emotions that accompany them. Serving as the first taste from his forthcoming EP, the release fuses together organic instrumentation with threads of electronic sounds to create a fresh and punchy soundscape. It's the kind of track you'll be bopping along to on the dance-floor with a smile on your face, whilst crying your eyes out!
Speaking of the track, Harris shares with MILKY: “I wrote Florence about a week after I had just ended a long-term relationship with my girlfriend as she was moving overseas and this was a huge change for me. Florence is all about the emotions and frustration of being distanced from someone who means a lot to you and these were all feelings that were new to me and in a lot of ways very painful. That being said, Florence is a super energetic track and I love the way we were able to produce the song in a way where we could have fun and upbeat instrumentation whilst still running with an intimate storyline and such heartfelt lyrics.”
Growing up by the seaside town of Sandringham, Melbourne, Harris' interest in music began through observing his father play the guitar. By the time he graduated high school, he had immersed himself within every instrument he could get his hand on, before foraying into writing and production.
