Harry’s House – Harry Styles
Much like the general population, I didn’t think much of Harry Styles when he was one of the five members of the wildly popular boy band One Direction. I mean, it’s easy in retrospect to hear how he stands out from the rest on almost every one of their tracks.
However, it wasn’t until ‘Sign of the Times’ that I perked up my ears and truly listened. This breakout single immediately established that Styles wasn’t going to be conforming to any of the conventions of mainstream pop radio that he had already been casually dominating with 1D. Rather, his journey as a solo artist would be one centered on the art.
