The Harpoons – ‘Keep You Around’ (mp3)
These guys! Used to get along to Harpoons shows when I was still back at school. They put out an EP a while back and have been gigging on and off for the last few years, but I nearly forgot about them until this dapper tune was swung my way. The four piece recently jumped onto the Two Bright Lakes bandwagon (Martin of label buddies Oscar & Martin also plays here). Nick Huggins has been working with the band on their debut record, which is due for release in 2012.
Loving the 60’s philly soul vibe happening here. Bec Rigby’s vox and that bassline makes for a pretty sweet groove. If this is anything to go by, word of the new record is hella good news.
The Harpoons will be playing a few shows with with Dick Diver in Nov, as well as Sugar Mountain Festival in January – see full dates below.
