It’s a bit misleading to label Bay Area’s artist Henry Nowhere as a lo-fi pop artist – his latest single “Not Going Back” has the fuzzy and smudged melodic elements of the genre, but swollen atmospherics of the song makes it feel like lo-fi pop on steroids. Think of The Radio Dept., but with a shoegaze-level density and still having some form of rhythmic concreteness of pop. Enjoy below:
In regards to the single Henry shared, “The feeling of being lost and content is a recurring theme in my writing. There is a big part of me that wants to drop it all, wander about and appreciate the worlds wonder. I know this impulse does not make me special in the least. For me music serves the purpose of giving the listener that sort of carefree getaway in a 3-minute bite-size form. That was my goal for this song and most of the EP for that matter.”
“Not Going Back” is from Henry’s upcoming EP with the same title, which was recorded in Los Angeles where he currently resides. Henry has been touring with Day Wave globally in the past four years and working on new music. Be on the lookout for more EP details.
