Australian guitar virtuoso and beloved songwriter Harts returns today with his first delivery of new music under the name in 2024, with Summer In June.

Having shifted focus in recent years to the separate creative project of The Melodaze, musician Darren Hart is making a huge comeback to the legendary name of Harts, and has unsurprisingly produced pure magic with Summer In June. The track follows on from the several successful releases as The Melodaze in 2023 – including Over & Again and Castles From The Moon – befitting Harts’ unique playing style and performance charisma.

Created in his home studio, Summer In June was not only written by Harts, but produced, mixed and mastered by the musician as well. A powerful hit of electro-funk, Summer In June is nostalgia inducing in the best way possible, Harts reflects on the process behind the single: “Summer In June is both a trip down memory lane, and the start of a new journey. Revisiting the style of electro-funk music that I loved so much growing up, the style that I incorporated so much of into my sound in the early days. I wanted to revisit those fun, energetic guitar-based grooves once more and use it as a pillar to establish more of what’s to come in the near future.”  

Put simply, Summer In June is a track to put on when you’re looking ahead to brighter days – having fun and enjoying life in all its facets.
