There's a special aura that surrounds Native Harrow. An intangible atmosphere that exudes warmth, love and aspiration for contentment.
Devin Tuel and Stephen Harms capture the sort of celestial spirit you'd find buried in the grooves of early 60s folk records. They thrive in a minimalist freedom that's unadorned by the over-stimulated instantaneousness of modern-day.
Their music has this grounded playfulness, equally adoring of psychedelic jams as traditional folk standards. While you may not find them melting into an eight-minute technicolour drone, their ability to harness such poetic phrasing and equally luscious sonics makes for some wonderfully epic narratives.
In this particular setting, on a sleepy and quiet Sunday morning at The Betsey Trotwood, those features come to the fore. Devin's voice fills the room with wonder and curiosity, as the pair weave tender, melodic treasures from their acoustic guitars, etching the weight of their stories into the walls that enclose them.
Performing 'Heart of Love', 'I Was Told' and 'Old Kind of Magic', this is Native Harrow for the Holler Live Sessions.
Native Harrow are currently touring around the UK, taking their fantastic fifth record, Old Kind of Magic, on a trip outside of the beautiful surroundings of rural Sussex which they call home.
