EP REVIEW: Harper – ‘Velvet’

Harper (aka. Sam Harper) alt-pop is as exhilarating as the rush of winning a race. This Bristol-born chanteuse has a voice that will shake the very ground you walk upon and strike something in you, that will reveal a part of yourself that you never even thought existed.

Harper has the power to re-invigorate a somewhat saturated music scene with the body of work she has produced with the ‘Velvet’ EP. It is an EP which is as equally varied in style and sound, as it is passionately delivered and full of artistic integrity.

The four tracks on the EP shine in a dusky, glistening grandeur to create a cascading soundscape that is all-encompassing and utterly defeating. Anchored by the silky rapture of her voice and added lyrical bite, there’s no escaping the towering power of Harper’s music.

‘Velvet’ has introduced us to an artist that has a clear sense of self and a sincerity to the music she makes. She makes catchy pop music with an honest skin. The EP does capture a precision and an elegance, which is rare to achieve on a début, but Harper has done this with such ease that it’s hard not to be proud of her.

‘Velvet’ is out now.
