Bristol-based Harvey Causon has established himself as one to watch with his powerful vocals, impressive instrumentation and introspective lyricism.
‘Artifice’ is a personal track that looks into the aftermath of a breakup. The languid, flowy feel of the soundscape is juxtaposed with the powerful moments of a couple on screen as they play a round of table tennis which morphs into a sensual yet jerky choreographed routine.
Harvey’s brooding voice and the slightly gloomy landscape of the video explores and highlights a sense of regret that comes from falling prey to temptations of attraction.
This exciting and heart-warming track showcases Harvey’s brilliant ability to mould R&B-tinged music with jazz and electronic influences. It’s an impressive release which feels like only the beginning for this rising star.
