In a intriguing fusion of alt-rock, metal, and grunge influences, rising star HRTLSS delivers an electrifying punch with his new single, Final Lullaby.

It goes beyond the boundaries of traditional genres, creating a musical experience that pulls the strings and ignites the senses. Linkin Park and Evanescence are just a few of the iconic bands that HRTLSS draws inspiration from to create a sound that is both nostalgic and cutting-edge.

Final Lullaby works as an emotional journey, a song that takes in a music realm of intense feelings and vivid imagery. This song plunges deeply into the heartbreaking scenario of facing the end of the world with a soulmate, a best friend or a loved one. The track captures the essence of the final moments, blending a sense of imminent loss with the beauty of shared intimacy.

HRTLSS, when talking about the track, mentions that…“’Final Lullaby touches on the final moments with your closest loved one, during an ‘end of the world’ scenario, which gives you chills, but is beautiful and pretty in its feeling.” 

HRTLSS has gone all in on Final Lullaby, pouring heart and soul into it. The hauntingly captivating and rather personal lyrics intermingle seamlessly with the driving force of powerful guitar riffs, thunderous drums, and haunting synth melodies.

The music’s intricate arrangement serves as a canvas for the emotions of the lyrics to be painted in vivid strokes.

HRTLSS explains: “It’s easy to write about something that’s close to you, and whilst an end of the world scenario is unlikely, imagining how I would feel knowing we only had minutes or hours left together, was enough to provoke the words and the message of our ‘final lullaby’ which is essentially your last kiss, your last embrace, your last breath. ”

From his roots in a metal band that conquered European stages, HRTLSS’s journey through the music landscape has been nothing short of remarkable, hailing from Cambridge.

Having shared stages with renowned acts such as You Me At Six, Enter Shikari, Bullet For My Valentine, A Day To Remember, and Architects, HRTLSS has honed their craft on the road and is now ready to capture the hearts of audiences worldwide.

Final Lullaby‘ stands as a striking representation of HRTLSS‘s prowess in crafting music that connects on a profound level.

Clearly, his artistic talent is a force to be reckoned with.
