It’s rare that I review ANYTHING anymore, albums, shows, let alone a single music video, but here we are. If you are privy to the midwest local music scene, it is no doubt that you have probably heard of the band Harlow. If any local band could be a super group, of sorts, it would be Harlow. Made up of Lauren Weaver (formerly of BROKE Detroit), Kelly Weaver (formerly of 12 Gauge Persuasion), Joe Allen (formerly of Avarice, Bat On Fire) and Kevin Razlog (formerly of Shudder), this band is relatively young, having only been together for around a year.
In that year they have not only recorded (a demo is out now, with a full album expected by the end of the year), and played local shows, they have played HEAVILY out-of-town (which is something it seems many local bands, regardless of location, seem afraid to do), having played Ohio, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and are going to be covering more of the east coast very soon. Now, on top of their rigorous work schedule, they had time to put out a new music video (no, not one of those crappy self-produced ones on the train tracks, or playing a gig) for their song ‘Shattered.’
The video was directed by highly acclaimed Director/Producer/Actor Sam Logan Khaleghi (whose credits include Approaching Midnight, Love Is A Thieves Game, Detroit 187, and more) who is rumored to have discovered the band after seeing an influx of Harlow branded hoodies at a local Detroit show, and becoming a fan of the band after finding them online.
This is definitely a band to check out, not only here in Detroit, but they will be touring throughout the summer, if they are coming to your town (and we know our listeners are nationwide) check them out. Their music is on point, the look is on point, and the energy is what made Detroit rock and roll famous.
