SINGLE REVIEW: Harry Styles – Watermelon Sugar

After tweeting “Kiwi walked so Watermelon Sugar could run”, Harry Styles’ fans went into full blown panic mode as they tried to decipher what he meant by the ambitious status. With all of the clues pointing at a new song from his forthcoming sophomore record ‘Fine Line’ (Out 13 December), the exact moment it would drop was still a secret and a mystery his fans desperately wanted to figure out. 

With not a lot of waiting needing to occur, he released the exciting new song after his coveted appearance on SNL. The sexually driven pop-rock track is a playful ode to a relationship he had during a steamy summer and the party behaviour that pursued. 

“Breathe me in, breathe me out. I don’t know if I could ever go without, watermelon sugar high” he confesses during the electric hook. With a lot of attitude and rawness behind the delivery, he manages to delivery a strong contrast between the lyrics, vocal delivery and sonical production. 

With the production growing throughout the duration, Styles stays true to his alt-pop/rock roots and doesn’t try to sensor his sound for radio.

This is a very strong song that continually grows on the listener and will have you falling more in love with Styles’ authentic sound.
