Brighton four-piece Harker have come out with a really strong, well-produced and thought out four-track EP in ‘Hours’.
The dynamics build and break powerful storytelling, with shouts to 90s post punk/emo such as Texas Is The Reason. Big sing-along choruses punctuate emotive vocal lines. Musical explosions, and subtle, intertwining melodies brought forth by the complimentary use of electric and acoustic guitar bring real power to these songs, that vocalist Mark has been playing acoustic for three years or so.
I like this EP. Apart from the songs being well-written and great production, it stands out from the folk punk scene because of its musical references to the Revelation Records hay day. Nice bit of kit.
