New Release & Video: The Harmaleighs – Anthem For The Weak

Nashville duo The Harmaleighs (Haley Grant and Kaylee Jasperson) have revealed another taste from their upcoming full-length LP She Won’t Make Sense with album opener ‘Anthem for the Weak’

The accompanying music video was shot in Mt. Pleasant in Tennessee and follows them around the scenic town on razor scooters, a hobby Haley took up during her darkest mental state at the advice of her therapist

Out on 2nd August via Nettwerk, She Won’t Make Sense is a concept album about mental illness – specifically Haley’s deeply personal journey through anxiety, depression and mania

“Anthem for the Weak is about listening heavily to the voice in your head”, Haley says of the track. “She talks so much and sometimes it’s like hearing your favourite song. She’s so easy to tune into even though she can be so toxic. This song sparked the idea of referring to my mental health as ‘Susan’ and putting a character to her.” The character of “Susan” appears throughout the album”

Produced by Dan Molad (Lucius, Tweedy, Here We Go Magic), She Won’t Make Sense is a stark contrast from The Harmaleighs’ previous releases, having evolved from their acoustic beginnings to a fuller sound involving synths, strings and drums. The album covers the full spectrum of sound, from heavier indie-rock tunes to somber folk, to create the frenetic energy needed to convey the emotional weight of the album’s subject matter

Comprising of Haley Grant (lead vocals, guitar) and Kaylee Jasperson (bass, harmonies), The Harmaleighs embarked on something of a modern odyssey since forming back in 2015. Getting rid of their Nashville apartment, putting everything they owned in a storage unit, buying a van, and hitting the road with their then 8-month-old Pug named Gus, the personal trials, tribulations, and triumphs over the last few years would ultimately inspire their latest music
