Out of the blue last September, north Londoner Harlea stunned us with her debut single, the world-conquering, riff-thumping ‘Miss Me’. It sat pretty in several viral playlists, briefly was the top song in Slovenia, racked up over a mighty 100k streams in a week – then she disappeared again. As starts go, it was bold, mysterious and empowering – but that’s just how she likes it.
Now, in 2017, Harlea blends blues, R&B and rock on new banger ‘You Don’t Get It’. If Amy Winehouse had picked up the electric guitar every once in awhile – it’d probably sound a little bit like this. With a year of activity and music planned, the 0e0e Records act is kicking it off with her first live show in the capital next week.
