HARPO SMITH’S BIO
Was it the course of shock therapy? Was it the solar flares? Was it the unrelenting diet of sugar and Spam? Who knows, but from the ashes of Orlando Seale and The Swell, HARPO SMITH was born, a jubilant tranche of home-grown bouffon Art-Rock.
Harpo Smith’s debut Superyacht EP is a taster of the upcoming album, ‘How To Spend It’. The title track is delivered in the voice of a swaggering, love-sick, possibly murderous oligarch. The EP also features Timeshare and Terrible Girl, both inspired by advertising and spam email.
HARPO SMITH has gotten off to an auspicious start with gigs supporting Nadine Shah at Omeara and Lux Lisbon at Scala. The band were also invited to play at Abbey Road Studios as part of a celebration of Lennon and McCartney’s songwriting hosted by Lauren Laverne alongside speakers Howard Goodall and Pete Waterman.
They are currently preparing to record their debut album ‘How To Spend It’. The EP is available from iTunes and all the usual streaming services.
