I Am Harlequin‘s new single Onesome will be out March 12th, it will be the first track from her forthcoming EP.
‘Onesome is a love song to oneself. I was fed up with relationships when I first wrote it and believe that respecting and liking yourself has to come first. I know a lot of people who cannot be by themselves, and perhaps I subconsciously wrote it to give them a little encouragement. Being alone has its perks.’ says Anne the brains behind I Am Harlequin.
Accompanying the track will be a remix by dubstep producer Killahertz who is a big fan of I Am Harlequin, ‘I am Harlequin is a brilliant new talent, her voice as quirky and unique as her sense of style. I’ve always been a fan of original bands like The Cure, The Smiths, etc, but not so much recent band-based acts. I Am Harlequin captures that calibre of originality in sound and fashion that I believe it takes to become a truly credible artist. It was a pleasure to work with and remix her material, above all I look forward to hear what’s to come from her and remix her next big song, listen to her!’
A firm favourite here at The Pigeon Note, we interviewed I Am Harlequin last year (read here) and think she is definately one to watch out for this year and it looks like its going to be a busy one, ‘I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen in 2012. The last year has already been so exciting. There’s a lot more going on in terms of releases and videos this year and besides all of this I am also planning my first little commercial line of clothing. Bring on 2012!’ (Anne)
An upbeat, heartfelt and brave celebration of singledom, You can listen to Onesome here: http://soundcloud.com/i-am-harlequin/onesome
