“Flicker” is a mixture of genres

Last month former One Direction band member Niall Horan dropped an album named Flicker. Horan was portrayed at the quiet band mate in One Direction and many were surprised when he announced that he was working on his own album last year.

The album includes the singles “This Town,” “Slow Hands” and the new release, “Too Much To Ask.” The album is a mixture of different types of genres. ‘Slow Hands’ has been said to be a “sleek and funky pop” type of tune, ‘Too much To Ask’ reflects a country ballad about the one that got away and ‘This Town’ has been compared to artist, David Brent.

Flicker has been a year and a half long writing and recording process. The process was unique and Horan decided that they did not have any choice but to film the process. Apple released “On the Record” in October.

Horan’s album can be found on Apple Music, Spotify and other music apps.
