Fronted by Alex Casnoff, former keyboard player for Dawes and PAPA , Harriet released their debut EP Tell The Right Story for free download earlier this year. The five song offering straddles the line between classic Americana songs and the sonic experimentation of electronic music and features the much buzzed about blog breakout track "I Slept With All Your Mothers" (official music video below).

"Harriet blends Americana and electronic music to create a sound that embodies the L.A. rock scene: Its debut EP, Tell the Right Story, sounds like a chillwave re-imagination of Kings of Leon or The National. The group combines hoarse vocals, dramatic riffs and electronic flourishes on its debut." - NPR Music

"The five-song effort, Tell The Right Story, is notably cinematic in nature with pointedly dramatic lyrics and melodies. "I Slept With All Your Mothers" is an aching indie rock number, as heavy in parts as it is forlorn." - RCRD LBL

"Harriet's debut EP showcases some truly unforgettable tales from Casnoff. Nodding to Wilco with the right touch of Queens of The Stone Age style grit, Harriet
eloquently transform alternative rock..
...The best story the indie world has produced in a long time..." -

"The new track offers a little bit of both bands' sounds, showcasing Casnoff's gritty, flame-broiled vocals over a piano's elegant bounce, with a fuzzy synthesizer and a distant pedal steel guitar marrying indie and country influences in the chorus." -
