Kid Harpoon releases his first EP on Monday 22nd October 2007.
Having put out a limited single "Riverside" on small indie label Brik-A-Brak, Kid Harpoon set out to tour the UK and hone his craft. 2006 saw him play over 200 dates nationally, touring with The Kooks, Jamie T, Mystery Jets, Larrikin Love and Fionn Regan. He gained the attention of XL Recordings, signing in late November of that year.
This EP then is the first chance people will have to hear some of those songs from the album sessions. The first thing that's clear is that Kid Harpoon is very much a singer/songwriter in the lineage of Great British songwriters - think Syd Barrett or Marc Bolan - one whose lyrics, far from conventional, transport the listener to another world. Sometimes idealized ("Milkmaid"), sometimes introspective ("As It Always Was") but full of the feeling of free spirit that pervades so much of what Kid Harpoon does.
Musically, The First EP shows the depth of Kid Harpoon possesses. From the gypsy-rock of "Fifty Seven," the almost electronic-like background accompaniment of "Aeroplanes and Neon Lights" to the lo-fi acoustic strumming of "The Water," it's an EP that is both encapsulating in its depth, scope and debt to the long lost art of real British musicianship.
