Singer-songwriter Karen Harding strikes back with her new single, Imaginary Boyfriend. It’s built around an electric guitar riff, which gives way to driving rhythms and pulsing synth layers that eventually determine the pace. The vocals generally retain a dreamy quality, except for the chorus, where they truly take flight and vie for prominence with the other instruments.
The lyrics engage with the complex dance between longing for the elusive love affair and the relentless pursuit of personal ideals. Simultaneously, they also underline the need to maintain independence.
Rest assured, Imaginary Boyfriend will provide you with some companionship on Valentine’s Day. Check it out below!
