Enigmatic Salford artist Ren Harvieu finally gets to celebrate the success of 2020 album Revel In the Drama with a further rescheduled UK tour that includes a big hometown show at Gorilla on 9 November. Tickets for the original dates for this performance are valid for entry.
The album, produced by Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers & Dave Izumi Lynch, departs somewhat from that 60’s setting of her 2012 Debut ‘Through The Night’ and delves a more HD world of deeper blacks and brighter colours both musically and lyrically. Ren struck up a telepathic writing partnership with Romeo Stodart, who also plays guitar in her live band. It is a record for all seasons, tongue firmly in cheek one minute, heart sucking in dark matter and exploding out supernovas the next.
“Harvieu is the kind of Salford lass you can imagine a young Morrissey raving about… a fully formed star.” – THE GUARDIAN 5/5
“Accessibly sumptuous…between easy-listening seductress and torch-song belter, her voice is soulful and dreamy with just a tang of something muskier in its sweetness.” – THE DAILY TELEGRAPH 4/5
“Hers is an arresting voice, soft and sweet, but dark in hue and sharp with melancholy, like a vinegar smoothie…. this is an impeccable debut.” – NME
