Canadian folk-roots duo Harrow Fair are proud to release and share “Sins We Made,” the first single and title track from their upcoming sophomore album, along with an accompanying video available for viewing here today. Based in Toronto, ON, this duo of Miranda Mulholland (violin/vocals) and Andrew Penner (guitars/percussion/vocals) burst onto the music scene and found great success with their 2016 debut album, “Call To Arms.” Touring relentlessly across North America and Europe, Harrow Fair also announce that their much anticipated follow-up album shall be released on April 17th, on Miranda’s ‘Roaring Girl Records’ label.
“Sins We Made tackles some of the news events that shook up our world in the last few years using the framework of a traditional counting song,” the duo shares. “In the Middle Ages, the troubadours spread news using songs veiled enough to protect themselves from accusations of treason. With this song, we played with that idea and each number, and the phrase that follows, is a metaphor for a person or occurrence in the news.” Fans of their signature (call it vintage) sound will not be disappointed, with the duo offering an up-tempo piece that delivers plenty of scorching violin, heavy kick drum, and rootsy guitar.
Don’t miss the music video, in which our favorite duo appear in a slightly animated feature delivering the message of a traditional counting song through their own quirky homage to ‘puppet theatre.’ “Andrew and I wanted to use the concept of a YouTube Unboxing Video,” offers Miranda. “The song alludes to … the ramifications of sinful behavior … [and] unwrapping those ideas down to the very core literally box by box felt cheeky, yet appropriate.” Produced by Andrew, and mixed by James Bunton (Will Moor, Joey Landreth), “Sins We Made” presents a new and exciting chapter for Harrow Fair. We are incredibly eager to check out more of their new music this coming April.
