Harriet is the brainchild of Alex Casnoff, the lone wolf who cut his teeth playing in LA's wildly revered PAPA and Dawes, already an impressive pedigree in its own right. Over the relentless locomotive piano of debut single "I Slept With All Your Mothers", Casnoff's howling vocals come bursting from your speakers with the emotional intensity of a man at his breaking point. He breaks it down real slow so his half growl, half croon sweet talks its way into your head like the lovechild of Neutral Milk Hotel and Wilco, delivered twenty years late. All in all, it's a full-bodied elixir for the heartbreak of a crashing American Dream, like a Richard Linklater film in song form that ends on a vindicated Oberhofer-esque final note. Look out for Harriet's debut EP Tell The Right Story on January 31st.
