Growing up on the 90’s Alternative bands such as Matchbox Twenty, Goo Goo Dolls, Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, etc., there’s certainly a level of influence based on that style of music, but we ultimately plan on releasing an album that blends the Alternative, Folk, and Rock genres. We can tell you that we’re looking to record with a multitude of different instruments on this record including mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass, keys, drums, and maybe even some cello if Rob is feeling up to it. Our rhythm section has always been one of our strongest suits, so we can promise some extremely moving music. This record will be filled with relatable lyrics, melodic harmonies, tasty solos, gang vocals, and varying tempos. Every element that we enjoy in the music we listen to we are incorporating into the songs we are writing.
One of our biggest inspirations currently is the band NEEDTOBREATHE out of South Carolina if that tells you anything about the path that our music has taken a turn for and we’re beyond excited to show you what we’ve been working on.
Harkland will be releasing singles off of our (untitled) album during fall of 2014 and plan on recording their first full-length album come 2015!
