Sensational Group H3rizon Share Infectious New Single “SERIOUS” Alongside Music Video


Aug 11, 2021

Comprised of three women, Bernadette Marquez (Bernie), Taylah Albert (Tay) and Gabrielle Montalbo (Gabby), of Filipino and Mauritian Heritage, Australian group H3rizon are without a doubt an act that should be on your radar, as they are gearing up to take over the industry one single at a time. Always keeping women empowerment, inclusivity and mental health high on their agenda, the trio is a true powerhouse. Gabby is currently studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Tay is consistently showcasing her stunning R&B voice, and Bernie is also contributing to their forward-thinking instrumentals as a producer.

Following their explosive cover of Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha’s future bass classic “In The Name Of Love,” H3rizon have now returned with “SERIOUS,” which might arguably be their most exciting release to date, and one that will only further fuel their impressive trajectory towards the upper echelons of the music industry. The trio has already amassed an impressive audience of more than 1.7 million followers on TikTok, and – alongside their management MOFO Music – have partnered with blockplay, a newly launched digital NFT label, to release “SERIOUS”.

A bubbly yet mature single, “SERIOUS” is a bright testament to H3rizon’s undisputed star power as a group, also coming alongside a playful music video that manages to spotlight each of the members in their own way. “SERIOUS” wonderfully incorporates influences from mid-00s R&B with contemporary elements, making up for a tune that is as nostalgic as it is futuristic and fresh. While a vintage-flavoured, driving beat acts as the foundation for the instrumental, infectious synths and arpeggios lead the way under H3rizon’s heavenly vocal lines and harmonies. The high-spirited music video makes up for the perfect addition to the song and truly elevates the experience, featuring the three girls in a variety of sets dancing, singing and generally carrying an intoxicating energy.

“Every time we post a video or write a song, I imagine the moment it’s being viewed or listened to… Mental health is an issue close to my heart, so we hope our art takes that person to another place, somewhere far away from the mundane, far away from any pandemic, from unpaid bills, from life struggles… even if it’s just for a minute!” says Taya about the song.
