Brooklyn-based quintet Jeremy and The Harlequins will release their self-titled debut EP on 17 December 2013.The tracks were recorded in two harrowing days on analog equipment at Detroit’s Tempermill Studios, which has hosted everyone from Loretta Lynn and The White Stripes to The Dirtbombs and The Go.
“Jeremy and The Harlequins,” which was produced by Matt Verta Ray, is soaked in upbeat rock n’ roll with a special nod to the classic Sun Records releases. Advance single “Cam Girl” also bows to another 50’s-era icon, Buddy Holly, without sounding a bit dated. Instead, the track finds Jeremy and the Harlequins claiming a spot in the fine lineage of Holly worshipers from The Beatles to Marshall Crenshaw and just about every power pop band from the 1970s on. Other standout cuts include the melodic “Right Out of Love” and the raw “Trip Into The Light.”
Jeremy and The Harlequins is built around Toledo, Ohio-born brothers Jeremy and Stevie Fury (vocals and drums, respectively) and rounded out by Craig Bonich (guitar), Nathan Cogan (bass) and Patrick Meyer (guitar).
