Today East-London based singer Harper reveals details of her new single ‘Animal’, due for release on May 23rd on London independent, ICU Label.
A compelling collision of light and dark, the new track showcases Harper’s distinctive vocals while gorgeous piano lines offset against brooding strings and deliciously dark beats. Effortlessly intertwining expertly crafted hooks with left field sonic influences, Harper offers a different take on pop music. It’s a sound that’s at once accessible and immediate, yet also deep and beguiling.
A perfect visual accompaniment to the track, the video for ‘Animal’, directed by Ben Newbury (Ellie Goulding, Laurel) has also been unveiled. Weaving a visceral collage of choreography played out by Harper and an ensemble of masked dancers, the track’s sinewy energy creates a compelling tension that evokes Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Black Swan’.
