The song “Sunglasses” is the first result of a unique collaboration between the legendary HARPO and the young glam rock band VELVET INSANE. This work is the definition of a summer anthem with its irresistible melodies that settle in after the first listen. The single will be released on all digital platforms on Friday the 21st of April.
The glam rock band Velvet Insane made contact with Harpo as the band liked his glam rock songs, such as “My Teenage Queen”, “Moviestar” and “Baby Boomerang”, from Harpo’s early 70s records. Harpo liked what he heard from Velvet Insane, like the band’s energy and vision, so the contact quickly resulted in recordings and planning a glam rock summer tour. A unique collaboration where the musicians meet across generations in the love of music, the joy of creating and the joy of playing live together. The goal is that the audience will feel the same and that everyone – young and old – will unite in the power of the music.
SUNGLASSES – THE SUMMER ANTHEM OF THE YEAR
A glam rock song that tastes 70s with irresistible pop melodies for many summers to come. A chorus that will stick like an old gum under your Converse. What more could be asked for from a really lovely summer hit? This single is the first result of the recent collaboration between Velvet Insane and Harpo, recorded by Tomas Skogsberg himself in his legendary Sunlight Studios, during a few hot days last summer.
