Kelsy Karter shocked the Internet when she tweeted a photo of her brand new face tattoo featuring Harry Styles‘ face. People debated whether the tattoo was real, what this girl could possibly have been thinking to put something so bold on her face, etc. Two days later, the New Zealand-born musician debuted her ode to the “Sign of the Times” singer, “Harry,” alongside its music video, and revealed that the tattoo was, in fact, fake.
Needless to say, if you didn’t know Kelsy Karter’s name a week ago, you do now, and you’re probably freaking out about this song just as much as we are. As soon as the track begins, it’s clear that Karter receives a lot of her inspiration from the Rock ‘n’ Roll era of the 60s and 70s. The listener is immediately transported to that time as Karter sings, “I blacked out, passed out, first time we met // It wasn’t drugs, could be love, but it’s probably sex // I’m thinkin’ ’bout you.”
The track’s retro vibes make it the perfect way to celebrate Mr. Styles, especially since he opened the doors of classic rock back up for the new generation to experience with the release of his self-titled debut solo album. In fact, we hear some definite similarities in sound between Karter and Styles. We wouldn’t be surprised if Harry himself jammed out to this tune.
The track has tons of energy and is definitely one of those songs you’d listen to while you’re dancing around your room singing into your remote. Karter kept it relatively simple in her lyricism, but the track’s classic rock composition really makes it a hit.
The artist finally name-drops Styles at the start of the chorus, singing, “Harry, I’m gonna make you love me // You’re gonna make me breakfast // It’s a secret just between us // We can keep it low-key // I ain’t bein’ funny // You should be so lucky // To put your, put your velvet arms around me.”
Karter’s “Harry” is the ultimate fangirl anthem, illustrating the feelings of desire and infatuation all fans have for their favorite artist. Catch the music video below, and don’t forget to share your thoughts on the tune in the comments below or by tweeting us @soundigest.
