Harrow Fair is a Canadian twosome containing Miranda Mulholland of Great Lake Swimmers and Belle Starr and Andrew Penner of Sunparlour Players, whose underlying coordinated effort came while working with Toronto's Soulpepper Theater Company where they composed music together. Certainly, one could state there's a component of drama to their music on the suitably named Call To Arms, where the primal, gut power of overwhelming kick drum impels the similarly substantial violin and guitar and a collection of different sounds along underneath the pair's shockingly howling, rootsy vocals.
On the confirmation of the collection's striking opening track, Hangnail, it may maybe depict the vibe as agonizing natural gothic, however its grimy, abrasive step, however unmistakably originating from a similar melodic quality pool as the unpropitious boogie of the title tune and the beating percussion call-and-reactions of I Will Be Your Man, frames yet one feature of the couple's exceptionally singular melodic articulation. Hell, the pounding violin-driven riffery of Bite Your Way even place me at the top of the priority list of the mid '70s prog-rockers High Tide, with a marginally grating yet semi-obscure chronicle quality to coordinate. Tourists come here from all over the world with their family members and friends.
