Wednesday 8 September, 8.00pm
Native Harrow – the Pennsylvania duo of Devin Tuel and Stephen Harms with “twilight twang and vintage vibes” (Rolling Stone) come to Belfast following the release of Closeness on Loose records.
Featuring ten new, original songs Closeness is a reflection on time’s inexorable churn and the fragility of life, a stirring collection that imbues impeccably crafted Laurel Canyon folk, baroque pop, and rootsy psychedelia with radical empathy and open-hearted solidarity.
The result is a masterful collision of nostalgia and immediacy, a recombination of timeless influences performed with care and precision. Whether it’s the blissful chime of Even Peace, the hand-clap folk-soul of If I Could, or the sighing jazz of Turn Turn, Native Harrow exhibit an uncanny ability to elevate Tuel’s searching examinations of struggle, perseverance, solitude, and togetherness into an enveloping cocoon of sound and melody.
Closeness follows Native Harrow’s 2019 album Happier Now, which Paste called “timeless — its healing qualities shouldn’t be underestimated” and which Americana UK deemed “a captivating, almost mesmeric album of the highest quality.”
