King of Hearts, ‘No One’s Watching’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
NX Records is a new imprint from British electronic artist Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Records and the Popular Music department of Goldsmiths, University of London. Launched to shine a light on music coming out of the New Cross section of London, NX Records is releasing ‘Crossing Lines,’ a new compilation featuring tracks created by a crew of gifted producers, bands and singers from the area.
One of the tracks off the upcoming compilation, ‘No One’s Watching,’ comes courtesy of producer/composer Harri Chambers, aka King of Hearts. A slow-burning jazz-inflected piece that also incorporates glitchy percussive synth elements, the song is about “how people experience music when they’re on their own,” according to Chambers.
The producer works out of a small studio in his living room, above a shop on a busy street. “People come past my windows all the time singing loudly with headphones or dancing along the street on their own,” he says. “I like the idea that stern-faced grumps on their way home from the office erupt into groovy singing/dancing street divas.”
The ‘Crossing Lines’ compilation arrives in stores on Nov. 11, but you can stream ‘No One’s Watching’ exclusively below.
