Plus Maz O'Connor
Rich with shimmering psych-folk, introspective lyrical wit and sophisticated 60s homage – Native Harrow is Stephen Harms and Devin Tuel, who emigrated together from Pennsylvania to Brighton, England in 2021.
After settling in at the very top of a crumbling regency building where the seagulls call to the sun’s rise and fall each day, they thought “this is the perfect place to make a record.” Two years on, Native Harrow have shared ‘Old Kind of Magic’ – an enchanted collection of songs that reprises 60’s sounds and sensibilities in a delightfully original way.
Harms and Tuel have self-produced a work that is simultaneously their most sweepingly expansive and delicately intimate to date – moving dramatically from the opening field recording of the Brighton seaside, to Laurel Canyon-esque folk-rock, piano and rhodes tinged soul-jazz balladry, oud and harpsichord driven 60s technicolour psychedelia, dense modernistic string quartet writing, and wide-as-the-western skies panoramic pedal steel with sepia-toned 12-string.
Presented by Bristol Beacon
“This classy folk-rock duo flip from artsy 1960s pop to psychedelic gospel with an enviable elegance.”
Described by The Guardian as ‘one of folk’s brightest young talents’, singer-songwriter Maz O’Connor has maintained a loyal following through use of her stunning voice, intelligent, bold lyrics and a talent for storytelling. Since receiving the BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellowship in 2014, O’Connor has toured Europe and the UK, performed at several high-profile festivals including Cambridge Folk Festival and Glastonbury, and released two full-length albums.
Her new album ‘Chosen Daughter’ is a concentrated feminist statement inspired by stories of her ancestors – a deeply personal record exploring and celebrating the feminine.
