Harry Gump - alt-folk from Germany

Harry Gump

There is so much to enjoy here with Harry Gump – I am not sure where to start….

The frayed jeans – growling vocals sprawl across the room. The smart shoes – a clear and well structured out-put. The T-Shirt – an edge of friction. The well tailored jacket – the intellect. In summation, unhappy perspectives of the world around, set to a smart compositions.

Perchance, I was drawn to look out of the window to spot a flock of Seagulls (not the band) arguing with a murder of crows over a feeding spot, whilst both considerate of Red Kites who have recently be reintroduced into the area and I found myself listening to a sound-track that fitted the moment.

Whilst Harry has an excellent grasp of English, I do believe the vocals would be enhanced by being written in native German, where the juices could flow more naturally, though I do understand why the delivery is in English. I do hope that Harry Gump decide to revert to the home language and at that point, we may well find iconic ’60s pioneers of agit-folk would have a run for their money.
