From the rolling hills of Scotland comes this promising new act: Ruth Granton, the strawberry-blonde you see in the picture above, is the brainchild behind HARLAW, an exciting new folk project that has sparked the attention of some of the nation’s most in-demand producers and singer-songwriters. Having worked with names like Tim Bran (The Verve, London Grammar, Rhodes and La Roux), Jacques Jenkins (Keaton Henson), Jolyon Thomas and Novo Amor, over the last year, HARLAW has put together an outstanding collection of songs for her forthcoming EP, Winter Stories.
Today, we have the pleasure of premiering “Wolf Eyes,” the lead single from HARLAW’s aforementioned EP. Equal parts affectionate and uplifting, the song strikes a perfect balance between Rhodes and Daughter, with a strong emphasis on the latter. A pounding kick drum and hazy guitars lay the groundwork for this single, but it’s HARLAW’s towering vocals that will send a chill running down your spine. If the rest of the EP picks up where “Wolf Eyes” left off, we’re looking at an impressive debut from the Scot.
