Harlan Relives 1984
LA-based artist Harlan is pleased to announce his second release, the 1984 EP, out digitally on September 25th. This follows his previous Native Son EP which was the perfect blend of funk, soul, and R&B.
Harlan grew up studying classical music. While studying cello at Berklee School of Music, Harlan decided one day to pick up his roommate's guitar, having never played before, and wrote his first song. Soon the cello was replaced by the electric guitar and a musical style influenced by funk, soul, rock, R&B and 90's hip-hop began pouring out. Harlan's music is filled with memorable hooks and stone cold grooves and sounds something like Frazier Chorus meets Prince. Check out a few tracks below and relive 1984.
