The Harpoons 2018

by The Harpoons

Feature Records for the week beginning Mon 9 Apr 2018

Driven by lilting drums and the smoky voice of lead singer Bec Rigby, soul-pop single 'Pressure' opens the 11-track genre-bending long play. Amaro perfectly encapsulates The Harpoons' originality and verve as tracks like 'Do You Want My Love' and its scorching dance beat - paying homage to women taking control, sit alongside the UK garage-inspired electro-pop slice 'Reassurance', the unexpected realisation of love in 'Set Me Up To Fall', and songs of loneliness and heartbreak in 'Amaro' and 'Be In Your Love'.

Amaro follows a monumental 2017 for The Harpoons. After signing to one of the country’s largest independent labels, Caroline Australia and prestigious booking agencies Select Music and Primary Talent, the band released the ecstatic, disco-fused single 'Do You Want My Love' premiering via Los Angeles radio giants KCRW, Australia's Rolling Stone and UK tastemakers Clash Magazine.

Their follow up 'Reassurance' received paralleled success, quickly becoming a community radio favourite, with nods from Complex UK and BBC Radio 1 and latest cut 'Pressure' premiered via UK’s Notion Magazine is still keeping bodies moving across Aussie radio stations.

The four-piece hit Northside Records Friday April 13 for an Amaro launch party after finishing up at By The Meadow this weekend.
