Mold, who was born in Basildon to an “old-school West Ham father and an Essex-born mother”, but grew up in Benidorm and London, has arrived at a pivotal moment in music culture.
Mold is the antithesis of the algorithm – a self-produced multi-instrumentalist who funnels the experiences of an early-twenties youngster in 2019 into infectious rock anthems. As a songwriter, he dives into generational unrest, where every emotion is hashtagged with profound colloquialisms, which then explode in massive choruses. As a live performer, he ratchets up that anxiety, and when the choruses hit, the payload is euphoric.. His nickname is H-Bomb for a reason.
Why does he think people connect with him? “Lyrically I try to be very honest and communicative. I’ve always done conversational dialogues in my songs.”
Harry Mold’s debut single “Drain” releases on June 28, 2019 through Touch Recordings.
