Harmony - Diminishing Returns

Harmony - Diminishing Returns
Blunt and bleak and ragged, Harmony mine a preoccupation for ballads and songs about loss. The band came together in 2010 after the union of Tom and Alex Lyngcoln who pledged to not only spend the rest of their lives together, but to write and play music together too. The ensuing output is a grinding concoction of gallows blues and downers.

These heavy proceedings are built around a tough and tempered rhythm section that includes Jon Chapple, propelled by the compromise of Lyngcoln’s abject vocals and earnest shredding, which drives songs along a thin line between rhythm and blues dexterity and searing, visceral ear bleeds. Harmony's instrumental component lopes and swaggers and occasionally erupts into white noise that hums in contrast to it's principal point of light - three soulful vocalists (Erica Dunn, Amanda Roff and Quinn Veldhuis) who offer call and response refrains, providing opportunities for songs to reach true moments of majestic cacophony and beauty.

Harmony have released three 7"'s and and AIR nominated self-titled album. Countless shows around Australia has included All Tomorrow's Parties, Boogie, Golden Plains, Melbourne Music Week and supports for Public Image Ltd, Explosions In The Sky, The Drones, La Dispute and many more.

About this track...

Diminishing Returns is eerily disparate and gorgeously bluesy. Its conclusion sneaks up on you and abruptly cuts short this immensely engrossing listen. Chrome dome vocals bouncing and clipping like rolling razors on a low tension trampoline. A medicated waltz. It's weird, it's non-linear. Eerily soft then primitively loud.
