Chris Pritchard (Guitar / Vocals), Mitch Malone (Bass / Vocals) and Jamie Warren (Drums) from Swindon, England, form the rock band The Harlers.
Originally formed as a duo in early 2015 it was earlier this year they completed their line-up which has resulted in their début EP Morning Light recently being released.
Classic ’70s brit-blues soars out of the speakers as The Harlers deliver music which has an earthy, crusty guitar buzzing like a chainsaw underpinning the songs with the heavy bass line churning through the speakers giving the compositions their pile-driving presence as the drums, which are played on a relatively small kit are able to not only make their presence known, they are able to control the dynamics and tempo of the roaring guitars. Laying atop of the sound is a bluesy vocal that enables the band to take their sound on disparate trajectories, suiting both the power pieces and the quieter moments in their music.
While the addition of of bass / second vocalist hasn’t changed the style of the tracks from earlier numbers, with one of their songs which was originally released as a duo – Your Love – appearing on the new EP it does enable them to deliver music of more dynamic range and natural feel, whilst at the same time has added impetus with The Harlers now becoming more frequently seen on stage, plus of course the début full release.
By way of an introduction the opening track on Morning Light – Searching.
