Fronted by Alex Casnoff, former keyboard player for Dawes and PAPA, Harriet released their debut EP TELL THE RIGHT STORY for free download earlier this year. The five song offering straddles the line between classic Americana songs and the sonic experimentation of electronic music and earned the band praise from NPR Music, Interview, MTV Buzzworthy, and more. The band is currently supporting AC Newman on a run of west coast dates (all dates below).

Read about what happened to the band's Alex Casnoff to inspire the song at the band's Tumblr.
"Harriet blends Americana and electronic music to create a sound that embodies the L.A. rock scene: Its debut EP, TELL THE RIGHT STORY, sounds like a chillwave re-imagination of Kings of Leon or The National. The group combines hoarse vocals, dramatic riffs and electronic flourishes on its debut." NPR Music
"Like the lovechild of Neutral Milk Hotel and Wilco, delivered twenty years late. It's a full-bodied elixir for the heartbreak of a crashing American Dream." Neon Gold
"Casnoff writes with a distinctive kind of fire that's like nothing we've heard in a very long time. It feels hurt, wounded and it feels paranoid. It feels delusional and destructive. It feels so damned literary and passionate that you find that you just keep listening, with every other line being so worth revisiting and analyzing even further." Sean Moeller, Daytrotter
