Harlow has given me the honours of premiering their new video for “Just Me” (shot and directed by Miguel at Yeah Films) this morning. If I haven’t already talked your ear off about them, Harlow is a grungy alt-pop band from Hamilton and their live show will stop your heart. I’m so in love with the look of this video as it switches from pristine black & white to grainy 90s grunge video quality. Miguel is a literal genius and Michelle is too cool for words. In all honesty, I could talk about Harlow for years without stopping, so I’ll shut up and let you watch the video now.
HOWEVER, you’ve now watched the video so…here I am, not shutting up. Typical.
Harlow hasn’t always been Harlow, or at least not for me. Harlow was/is Michelle. My best friend since preschool. She’s been with me through literally everything (except my first steps and my first words) and I’m so excited that I get to be on this journey with her. A year ago, we sat down with Jeff (the instrument brains in the operation and her lovely boyfriend) in a Starbucks to discuss her new music vision and how to make it happen. A year later, they have an EP and a handful of incredible videos traveling through the universe. I’m so proud of them and can’t wait to see them playing the Molson Amp someday. I love them like my own children, and I love Michelle like a sister. I hope you fall in love with them too. ?
