Alt-pop newcomer Harper returns with Skin, a new EP released today and a follow-up to her debut EP Blood Sweat Tears which marked her arrival on the scene earlier this year.
Originally from Bristol, the 24-year-old singer draws inspiration from her experiences as a young woman in a male-dominated industry, as well as issues of cultural diversity and tumultuous relationships.
The EP’s title track sees her deliver a sensual, sultry vocal over a pulsing electro beat with an instantly addictive hook, and trades the brooding, emotive intensity of Blood Sweat Tears for a sassier, urban-infused style and bold attitude.
Harper said: “Skin is an earthy, raw, alt-pop record with a much deeper concept than you may perceive from first impressions. I wanted to write about the properties of skin; how it’s our protective barrier from the world, it’s power to heal when cut, and apply that sentiment to my love for a person.”
The four-track Skin EP is available to download from today.
