Australia's Hauskey is back with his new single 'Go Wrong'.
The Sydney-based musician has released his first track of the year, and his first new music since his 2020 debut EP 'Slow'.
The singer-producer might be a self-professed pessimist, but the joyous melodies he makes are anything but.
With 'Go Wrong', Hauskey perfectly captures that feeling we all get when life is going swimmingly, but you are suspicious something is about to go wrong, with his breezy, soulful synth-pop encapsulating the high.
On the chorus, he sings: "I get suspicious if I get my wishes/If I'm doing great, then something must be wrong/ I know it isn't healthy and it doesn't help me/ But I sit and wait for something to go wrong."
Speaking of the track, Hauskey - real name Andy Hopkins - said: “If you’ve heard my music, you’ve probably picked up an air of pessimism in my writing. Lately some exciting stuff has been happening, but my natural tendency to expect the worst is holding me back from enjoying it. And so we have 'Go Wrong'; me and my brain being unable to celebrate a win, however small, because it’s so quickly on the lookout for the next stumbling block.”
As for his backstory, the bedroom pop artist founded a music school in Perth to make some extra cash whilst studying, but decided to focus on making his own music and has been doing so ever since.
Hauskey is working on a new EP set for release via slowplay + Republic/Polydor Records this spring, details of which will be unveiled in due course.
