Harper Blynn Back In The Studio, Announce North American Fall Dates

Following their acclaimed debut album, Loneliest Generation, released earlier this year, Harper Blynn jumps back into the studio later this month to record a new 5-track EP at Ben Folds’ studio in Nashville. The as-yet-to-be-titled EP is another showcase of the colorful and prolific Brooklyn quartet’s creativity and knack for writing instantly memorable songs. The EP will give fans a chance to hear recorded versions of road-tested live favorites “Models and Dancers” http://www.youtube.com/harperblynn#p/u/10/XUcgJHjT1IM and “Bound to Break” http://www.youtube.com/harperblynn#p/u/6/H5_A67qNPn8 .  Watch this space for the release date. 

Harper Blynn, named for its two principle songwriters, Pete Harper and J.Blynn, with drummer Sarab Singh and a Dutch bass player called “Whynot,” continue their hectic touring schedule this fall with a full North American tour in October and November with Greg Laswell. Dates kick off in Cleveland on Thursday, October 28th. Before this tour, the band will support Corinne Bailey Rae in Philadelphia at The Electric Factory and will make several appearances at the CMJ Festival in New York.

Along with originals from their critically acclaimed Loneliest Generation (produced by David Kahne and Malcolm Burn),Harper Blynn is known for peppering their live shows with incredible covers of songs ranging from the Stone’s “Loving Cup” toBeyonce’s “Halo,” in which they add a bit of Dirty Projectors’ song “Cannibal Resource” for good measure.

MTVu premiered their video for the single “Loneliest Generation,” shot on location in Philadelphia and on the band’s home turf in Brooklyn. Check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Q9kD6c8vEo

Praise for Harper Blynn’s Loneliest Generation:

“Stunning for its precision, effortlessness and timelessness, Loneliest Generation is an intimate, well-worn and enchantingly familiar collection of 10 near-flawless roots-rock gems.” – Absolute Punk

‘It may seem like Brooklyn bands pop up at the rate in which babies are born in the US (one every seven seconds, according to the Census Bureau), but every once in a while one of them is worth getting excited about. Harper Blynn’s solid, giddy power pop is paired with glorious harmonies and a timeless sound, which is augmented by their incredible live show.”  -Gothamist

“Loneliest Generation was produced by David Kahne, who also helmed the Strokes’ First Impressions of Earth. Harper Blynn is just as catchy as that notorious garage rock quintet, but with a kinder view of the world.” – PASTE MAGAZINE

Alternating between acoustic ballads and upbeat rock anthems, this hopeful 10-track collection provides a varying yet cohesive listen, combining alt-country, rock and folk melodies.” –CMJ
