Sydney-based artist LOVER has released his debut single titled “Eagle To The Prey”. It is a rhythmic, hip hop-flavoured, electropop record that has been released today, September 6th, via Mammal records. With laid-back vocals, the singer delivers powerful lyrics that will allure you to his creative world. LOVER’s real name is Oliver Kirby. He recorded the song with his artist-friends in their home recording studio. He says:
“I’d been working with my housemates Oh Boy & Tanssi, trying to find a production lane that was unique to me, and suited my song-writing style. This track in particular was a beat created from a guitar sample that Tanssi chopped up in Ableton, which we then looped and added a hip-hop drum overlay. I felt this was a new perspective to the types of beat I had previously written with, and it opened the door for me to write songs in a different way.”
“Eagle To The Prey” emotionally talks about the loss one feels at the end of a relationship. Listen.
