'I Don't Want To Be Alone'

Sydney's Paddy Harrowsmith is a real one-off.

A songwriter whose hypnotic psychedelia is truly engrossing, his fusion of killer melodies and remarkably, immersive effects achieves a fine balance.

Using the name Green Buzzard, he recently met up with Dave Sitek at his rambling Los Angeles studio.

New single 'I Don't Want To Be Alone' is his latest project, and it's the start of a fresh chapter for the Australian artist.

A song about breaking up and moving forwards, it's about accepting the right thing while still dwelling on the loneliness it might cause.

He explains: "Essentially the track is about breaking up with someone and weighing up whether or not it's worth trying to fix things – knowing deep down it's ultimately better to move on but selfishly not wanting to be alone."

“Throughout the recording process we listened and drew inspiration from The La’s to Lana Del Rey to The Church to A$AP Rocky,” Harrowsmith continues. “A similarity between all of these artists was a sense of space in the music, a 'less is more' approach which myself and Dave tried to emulate as best we could by not over doing anything.”

Tune in now.
