The silky smooth tones of Naarm/Melbourne troubadour Connor Black-Harry offer a salve to the senses with his new track ‘Stupid Monkey’ – honey-dripping soft vocals draped over gently undulating guitars with lyrics that evoke a gently humorous take on the things that bear down on our shoulders.

Black-Harry says of the song:

Everyone knows how it feels to have an insistent weight on their shoulders or a monkey on their back. ‘Stupid Monkey’ explores the rude realisation that the process of healing and growth is messy, frustrating, and yet finally, ultimately cathartic.

The lyrics are raw, expressive and self-deprecating:

I got medicine to jettison
This monkey in my brain
Throw the f**ker out the
Plane to see
I’m the captain of this fallacy

The alt.folk track is accompanied by a beautifully shot video directed by Mike Radley set at dusk and in the night like an enigmatic Michael Mann/Nicolas Winding Refn movie, with Black-Harry expressive and euphoric:

‘Stupid Monkey’ is out now and available to download and stream here and through the link below. Black-Harry will be launching the single at Shotkickers, Thornbury on Thursday April 20th. Find tickets here.
