Introducing the brand new solo project from artist and songwriter Ari Manninen, Hoofgrove promises supreme musicianship and passionate, infectious melodies alike throughout a superb debut album – not least of all in the form of the beautifully colourful, poetic and provocative Turn My Back On You.
Featuring a dreamy, beachside vibe with layers of guitars and a marching, tripped-up rhythm, the song introduces the characterful and accessible vocals of the singer, and progresses through a long-form melody to weave an imagery-laden storyline that’s quick to captivate.
Brilliantly melodic, rising up and meandering in a genuinely fresh, creative way, Turn my back on you has the makings of an authentically original single. Hoofgrove injects a certain air of artistry and realness into the indie world, and this single showcases precisely these qualities.
A deeply thoughtful track, with dashes of uncertainty, conceptual insecurity, reflected both lyrically and in the changing chord patterns.
Fantastic, a refreshingly interesting act with an exciting manner of song-writing that’s well worth getting to know.
Download the music via Bandcamp from July 1st.
