Many AUK readers will be familiar with the music of Native Harrow who, until recently, were based in the UK and toured extensively in Britain and Ireland as well as Europe.  The band (Devin Tuel and Stephen Harms) have now returned to the US and have announced the release of their latest album, “Divided Kind”, which arrives on 13th September 2024 via Different Time Records.

Whereas Native Harrow’s previous records have grown increasingly more expansive, both stylistically and in terms of the musical forces applied, “Divided Kind” is described as countering this with “a lateral move towards the ground, with both feet firmly planted, in a folk-soul-rock sound that still explores their love of RnB, jazz, country, and farther-flung inspirations while simultaneously digging in, with more authority, to the musical world they have constructed”.

The new album was produced and recorded by the pair, in their home studio surrounded by vintage acoustic and electric guitars, dusty semi-functional amplifiers, and out-of-date Rhodes B3 piano. Alex Hall was brought in again from Chicago to add drums and to mix, while engineer Joshua Friedman mastered the record. London’s own Joe Harvey-Whyte added the pedal steel to one track ‘Borrowing Time’.  With those exceptions, all voices and instruments are the work of Tuel and Harms.  You can listen to ‘Borrowed Time’ below.

Native Harrow will be announcing a run of in-stores around the release date as well as part of which they will be in the UK for promotions from 27th August to 9th September 2024.  Shows have been announced for Folklore Rooms Brighton (3rd September) and the Basement of Third Man Records in the West End of London (6th September). “Divided Kind” is available to pre-save and pre-order at this link.
