The Harriets are a Leeds based, power pop trio, with retro inspired harmonies. The music features the bright and distinctive vocal harmonies of its two songwriting frontmen, and the interplay of melodic bass with jangly guitars. With plenty of feel-good, catchy songs, the band's two lead songwriters combine the classic retro with the relevant and contemporary, sure to make you want to dance and sing along. Think Big Star, The Smiths and The Beach Boys.
We are two songwriters from Nottingham and Glasgow who want to share our songs with a wider audience. Our genres are mainly grounded in folk, story telling with influence like Neil Young, Everything Everything, John Martyn, and Biffy Clyro.
