If you’re a fan of Fall Out Boy, Bring Me The Horizon, yungblud & Panic! At The Disco, then you are in for a treat with this guy! Let me introduce you to Harry Jxye.
Harry Jxye (pronounced Harry Jay) is a young Pop Punk artist from the South West region. He’s no stranger to the big stage with accomplishments such as The Isle Of Wight festival on his ever growing list of outstanding performances. You can definitely hear the influence of the bands I’ve listed at the start in Harry’s music, so you’re in luck if you’re a big pop punk fan.
Harry’s latest single “S.O.S” is a perfect representation of the genre. It’s heavily guitar based song with a fast paced rhythm section that keeps the energy on 10. What I like about the song is there’s no messing about, it’s straight into the song and before you know it, you’re deep into the first catchy chorus of the track.
It certainly feels like a confessional song from Harry’s point of view. There’s no smoke and mirrors when it comes to the meaning, he lays his thoughts all out on the line. It’s really cool how he’s basically telling us all these really personal thoughts and feelings that are going through his mind, and the things that he’s currently experiencing in life, but it doesn’t feel boring or like it’s the ramblings of a emotional man. It feels fun and relatable. He’s telling you a true story in an energetic format, and one that’s catchy and easy to follow along with.
During the song, Harry confesses that he can’t write happy songs anymore. And how he never thought he would make it due to his past of being “chewed up, spat out & hated” referring to the way powerful people in the music industry have perhaps treated him and his music in the past. Again he’s letting us into a vulnerable and hurt mind state, but portraying it in a fun and energetic manner.
Have to say I was a big fan of Harry’s past work such as “Fake Friends”, and it’s really positive to see him going strength to strength with this new track. You rock mate!
