Henry Wolfe - with "an ear for melody that falls somewhere between Paul McCartney
and Harry Nilsson" (WKUT) - offers up a retro throwback that channels 1960s minimalism on "Someone Else," recorded and mixed entirely in analogue for his debut album 'Linda Vista,' out April 5 on Undermountain Records.
Inviting you into the song with a simple folk-inspired instrumentation, "Someone Else" depicts one man's spiral into insanity, juxtaposed with a lighthearted arrangement that makes for a beguiling and buoyant tune.
"Losing touch with your sense of self is a terrifying prospect, but I was interested in portraying it in a positive light," notes Wolfe. "In the end, the singer is liberated from his identity and all the baggage that comes with it. Could disassociating from reality be an empowering experience?"
