They say from tragedy comes triumph and in King Artur‘s case, a mesmerizing new song. The Finnish turned NYC musician crafted his latest single “Homestar Eyes” after the unfortunate passing of a dear friend. The song’s somber tones and hints of melancholy in Artur’s voice make this pretty apparent; but the brilliant instrumentation is catchy and uplifting enough to turn a downbeat mourning tune, into a soul touching clap along number. Given the backstory, haunting might be an ill-suited word to describe the song, but good luck getting “Homestar Eye” out of your head this week is all we’re saying.
