Harry Jay‘s newest tune ‘Pool Party’ is well and truly all about the funk. Disco rhythms, deeply grooving bass, retro synths, vibrant guitar and singable lyrics makes this such a feel-good listen that reflect the songwriter’s sense of personal achievement in having surpassed the trials of popularity that we all go through at one point or another in life.
As the Washington D.C. artist shares:
“Pool Party tells the story of a girl from my past who treated me for a long time as if I didn’t exist or wasn’t important enough to spend time with, but attempted to befriend me when I began gaining popularity for my music. The song encapsulates the frustration that came with wanting to be a part of the “in” crowd and wanting people to notice me, as well as the confusion and eventual disillusionment that came with being treated as if I was “cool” just for my musical abilities.”
With its fun, fresh and toe-tapping aesthetic, that looks to follow in the footsteps of acts like Chromeo and Daft Punk, ‘Pool Party’ is the perfect soundtrack for when you need an personal uplift.
