I already feel gloomy.


If you listened to the new track from singer/composer Harrison Lipton ’15 and weren’t the slightest bit disappointed that it wasn’t a cover of the brilliant Eve 6 anthem of possessiveness, you’re probably not alone. (Seriously, you can admit it without shame. 2003 was a great year.) But don’t let that stop you from giving the track (which is currently streaming on CMJ) a listen, because this is a strong debut that exhibits excellent songwriting and crisp production–slightly reminiscent of PBR&B acts like Active Child, James Blake, and How to Dress Well. Kind of. But not exactly. RIYL’s are weird and counter-intuitive.

You might have witnessed Lipton’s striking talent as a vocalist and performer at Drastic Measures jams, but “Think Twice” shows that Lipton has a lot going for him as a solo artist as well. While Lipton showcases his impressive capabilities as a producer and songwriter, his hauntingly beautiful croon–recently featured in a new track from Mister Lies–is the real standout, delicately soaring above minimalistic yet lush instrumentation and pegging Lipton as a solo artist worth keeping your eye on for future work.

Though this is currently Lipton’s only track, you can check him out on both Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
