VIDEO RELEASE: The Pearl Harts introduce ‘Lara' on new single Print E-mail
Friday, 08 December 2017 12:25

The Pearl Harts have released, ‘Lara’, the first single taken from their forthcoming debut album, which is due to follow early next year:

 

 

The duo – lead singer/guitarist Kirsty and drummer/vocalist Sara – say of the single:

 

“Lara represents the duality of women in the 21st Century, their traditional feminine side, for example, putting on make-up can directly encounter their harder side, for example, eating chips messily in a kebab shop, or running riot in the streets. Everyone is, or can be Lara, people should be able to relate to her, want to be her or see her as a friend of theirs already. She is cool, badass and fearless.”
