Harley Alexander has been through a lot in the past year, but amidst the series of change and turnover, music has only been the one constant. After a series of missteps and arrival at clarity, Alexander moved across Canada, East to West, from Halifax to Vancouver where he spent a few months as a tree planter. His mini-album Harland (via Sports Day Records) is made up of eight gratifying songs that reflect on the uncertainty and excitement that comes with major life choices.
“Staring At Photographs” is a song that looks back at old times while moving towards the future. The track’s clunky melody, imbued with Alexander’s radiance and playfulness, will draw out smiles due to it’s fizzy quirks and ditzy turns.
Harley rolls into town to play the Cake Shop 8/11 for his tour across America.
