Harmony coast through verse, chorus and coda like a tropical cyclone. Their sound is a mongrel concoction of gallows blues and balladry, but offset by a glorious three part gospel vocal ensemble, that lifts the songs out of the dark and into thrilling, yet haunting territory. Harmony feature Tom Lyngcoln (The Nation Blue), Alex Kastaniotis and Jon Chapple (McLusky), Harmony simmer down all the intensity of their previous ensembles into a simple, brooding and understated heartbreaker, while Amanda Roff (Ukeladies), Quinn Veldhuis and Maria Kastaniotis tear the arrangements apart with sweet reprise.
About this track...
No Hope is our attempt to really hit that sombre note of 50’s & 60’s girl groups. Old instrumentation, haunting melody. It features pretty wailing bridge as performed by Maria Kastaniotis. Once again this was a first take that was intended to be a demo but remained throughout recording, mixing.
