Formed in 2015, Chris Pritchard and Jamie Warren started rehearsing song ideas which would become the band signature style, with Electric Guitar and Drums. The pair gained an intimate musical understanding mixing Blues Rock with an Alternative twist singing about personal tales of love and loss. With influences such as The Black Keys, Royal Blood, Queens of the Stone Age and Gary Clark Jr. the bands sound of foot-stomping drum grooves, growling bass tone, piercing guitar and powerful, vibrant vocals create a modern Alternative Rock sound. In June 2016 The Harlers released their debut single Your Love. A video quickly followed and the bands reputation as a live band grew with wild, eye catching performances. In September 2017 the band released their debut EP Morning Light to a sold out crowd at The Victoria, Swindon. 2018 has started with real purpose for the band having been featured in NME Magazine as an Emerging Artist in January, then nominated for the best UK unsigned rock act at the UMA awards shortly after. The bands latest single Heart Of Gold was released in February marking the change in sound grabbing the attention of radio stations in the UK. The track is currently featured on Planet Rock Radio. Rocking like The Black Keys would if they had found a substantial stash of premium grade steroids at the back of the rehearsal room, Heart Of Gold is as a ruthless a statement as you could hope for. - The Ocelot Slow and hypnotic, raw and righteous, this is the beating heart of blues rocked up, repackaged and Anglicised and the result is glorious.; - The Swindonian The songs bring to mind an image of a working man trying to find a place in the world for him and his loved ones - Reyt Good Magazine
