Lilac Frog has recently unveiled a new single: "How The Curtain Closes."
Hailing from the UK, artist-producer Harri Hocking is the mastermind behind Lilac Frog, a unique music project with a focus on blurring the lines between various influences while retaining a very authentic twist. In particular, Harri’s lyrics are very genuine and easy to relate to, denoting his ability to use music as a form of self-expression rather than just plain old entertainment.
The artist’s most recent single, “How the Curtain Closes,” is a nostalgic song that combines exciting acoustic guitar patterns with lush synth pads and keyboards, as well as a very energetic drum beat. The vocals are melodic yet understated and spontaneous, highlighting the nostalgic flair of the lyrics. This mid-tempo track is mesmerizing and atmospheric yet also quite energetic, allowing the music to offer a broad range of sounds and qualities. While retaining a modern and catchy twist, "How The Curtain Closes" evokes a bittersweet sense of longing. The lyrics, poetic yet honest, paint a vivid portrait of fading moments and the inevitable passage of time as people move on and sometimes drift apart. The meticulous balance and attention to detail in the mix create a vibrant, edgy, and striking sonic landscape.
The b-side, “In My Mind,” which came out previously, is another great song that rounds up this release nicely. This is a slower song, offering another side to the artist’s vision. Each element in the song is carefully crafted, resonating with introspection and a profound sense of yearning.
Lilac Frog’s music, especially "How The Curtain Closes", comes highly recommended to fans of artists such as Halsey, CHVRCHES, Dead Rituals, Odesza, FINNEAS and Loving Caliber, only to name a few.
