By Harper Simon
In support of his recently-released debut full-length, Harper Simon has released 'Wishes and Stars,' a summer's day breeze of twee folk-pop.
Its bang-on-trend bumping folk rhythms are slathered in a sticky alt-pop coating, but the lyrics lack the emotion to transform this song from something pretty, into something affecting. Harper Simon lamenting about a lack of friends, doesn't quite tug at the heart strings like 'Wishes and Stars' clearly wants to. A glittering track of melt-in-the-mouth melodies, and a half-hearted tale of woe.
