The Band: Jeremy and The Harlequins, a New York City rock band with an ear for the classics (Elvis, Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly)
The Video: “White Star Bright Love”
Fun Fact: The band recorded their debut album in a two-day burst at Tempermill Studios, a Detroit-area studio where the White Stripes once recorded a Christmas single.
Songwriter Says: “This tune is for anyone who’s ever seen someone in a bar they wanted to talk to, but didn’t know what to say… on drugs.” - American Songwriter


There’s an urgency in the gnarled songs of Jeremy And The Harlequins, a Brooklyn-based band with a true love for rockabilly, blues, and real rock ‘n’ roll -- the kind you’d hear blaring in some Southwestern desert juke joint or a whiskey-soaked road house on the skirts of town. Sure, it could seem like a throwback musical costume -- recalling Elvis Presley or Roy Orbison -- or perhaps even Jack White. But Jeremy And The Harlequins seems to come by that rawness honestly.

Just as quickly as the band formed, its members -- brothers Jeremy and Stevie Fury (from We Are The Fury), Craig Bonich, Nathan Cogan and Patrick Meyer -- spent less than a week rehearsing before recording in just two days on analog equipment at Detroit’s famous Tempermill Studios.

The result, the band’s self-titled EP (out today, Dec. 17), captures that grizzled live wire energy to a tee -- especially on the uptempo rambler, “Trip Into The Light.” - WNYC Soundcheck


New York rockers Jeremy and the Harlequins stay true to their vintage vibes in the new video for “Right Out of Love.” Despite the band’s impromptu formation—performing last Independence Day without a single rehearsal—their sound is anything but careless. Jeremy Fury brings his band’s sixties-esque strumming into the twenty-first century with lilting, energetic vocals. “Out of Love” is a song with disenchanted precision, a perfect backdrop to the video’s hitchhiking lovers.

“It’s a love song about falling out of love,” Fury clarified. “Most relationships don’t end in some climactic tragedy, they just end. It’s such a serious situation when two people break up. But anything taken too seriously usually has an element of humor to it as well, and that is the idea we are trying to present in both the song and the video.”

“Jeremy and The Harlequins,” which was produced by Matt Verta Ray, is soaked in upbeat rock n’ roll with a special nod to the classic Sun Records releases. Advance single “Cam Girl” also bows to another 50’s-era icon, Buddy Holly, without sounding a bit dated. Instead, the track finds Jeremy and the Harlequins claiming a spot in the fine lineage of Holly worshipers from The Beatles to Marshall Crenshaw and just about every power pop band from the 1970s on. Other standout cuts include the melodic “Right Out of Love” and the raw “Trip Into The Light.” - See more at: http://www.fredperrysubculture.com/music-news/9037/jeremy-and-the-harlequins#sthash.ToajZWIK.dpuf - Fred Perry's Subculture


Doo-wop garage revivalists Jeremy And The Harlequins straddle decades in their anachronistic single Cam Girl. The gooey, teen-romance track sounds like a bottle of two-straw soda pop in a diner, but references the internet, MacBooks, webcams and other recent tech paraphernalia.

The Cam Girl video, on the other hand, could still be the product of the daydream of a hormonal suburban kid in the ’50s. It’s a PG-rated tease, with lollipop-twirling girls posing for the camera against a bubblegum pink background. Think Hunx & His Punx without the bondage. Jeremy And The Harlequins’ self-titled EP is out now. Check out our premiere of the video, plus the band’s just announced tour dates below. - CMJ


On Feb. 10, Jeremy and the Harlequins self-released their latest studio album, American Dreamer. Packed with 10 tracks of stripped-down and authentic rock and roll, the record is a breath of fresh air in our constantly over-saturated world of new music. Today (April 16), Diffuser is thrilled to keep the celebration of American Dreamer going with the premiere of the band’s music video for “Some Days” — check it out above.
Along with the honest sound of “Some Days,” Jeremy and the Harlequins teamed up with director Adam Erick Wallace to create a perfect visual that captures the raw energy of the track.
“The video for ‘Some Days’ is what happens when you mix talented and reliable friends, Super 8 black and white film, motorcycle jackets, boots, pompadours and a beautiful day in New York City,” frontman Jeremy Fury tells us.
You can pick up your copy of American Dreamer here, and make sure to stay up-to-date with everything happening in Jeremy and the Harlequins’ world — including a run of gigs in the U.K. — at their official website.

If there were a GPS that directed you to ultra-cool rockers based in New York City, you'd likely be directed immediately to Jeremy and the Harlequins. Obviously, I say that s assuming you've updated your satellites. Speaking of which, is that still a thing? I use my phone. Anyway, the ever-so-retro Jeremy and The Harlequins are throwbacks to yesteryear, but their lyrics and unique style make them true originals relevant for these whacked-out times we live in.

Last month, the band trekked to Westchester County to film an A-Sides in support of their new release American Dreamer only to discover the space for the shoot was closed due to weather. They probably GPS'd the location by the way. Moving forward, on that same day, they returned to New York City to record the planned session only to find out a videographer who had been locked in, simply couldn't get there. The solution? Film on an iPhone. Well, it worked better than you'd expect, but it didn't work. The reason I bring this up is the band were cool about this, and so was their PR guys. If it was me, I would've went bananas. Maybe they did, but they were kind enough to hide it from me. Anyway, thankfully, the band of brothers (well two bandmembers are - frontman Jeremy and drummer Stephan - along with guitarists Craig Bonich and Patrick Meyer, and bassist Bobby Lechner) did a reshoot (filmed by Lisa Larson-Walker), recorded two killer songs, and chatted a bit.

Before we get to the vids know this: the band may have a retro feel but it doesn't mean they don't have their own unique style or uses for double negatives in sentences I write. Their bio refers to them as "whimsical," and it's on point but their lyrics and musicianship go well beyond whimsy. So catch this band when they play the states or if you're in the UK hit them up with Planes (featuring Steve Forrest, formerly of Placebo)next week*. For now, watch the videos and grab American Dreamer today. Oh, and hopefully I haven't ruined Westchester County and iPhones for them forever. - Huffington Post


When Jeremy Fury recorded “You’re My Halo” with his old band, they subtitled it “Prom Song.” His new group, Jeremy and the Harlequins, sharpened the tune into something more suited to a delinquents’ ball. The new version premieres today on Speakeasy.

It’s a vintage-style rock ’n’ roll song powered by trebly guitar, Fury’s impassioned, reverb-soaked vocals and backing shoo-wops. The song comes from the group’s upcoming debut, “American Dreamer,” which comprises songs Fury and his drummer brother Stephan began working on while both were home visiting family in Ohio.

When we think rock 'n' roll, we think classic badass—and there's nothing quite as badass as writing an entire album in just one week. Leave it to Jeremy and the Harlequins to come together by chance, click, and churn out a record that evokes the crooners and jammers of times past in just a few days. With some melancholy yet playful vibes reminiscent of both Elvis and Buddy Holly, the group of five stays true to their acoustic rock roots while mixing in their own definitive style. It's not vintage—it's retro.

With their new album, American Dreamer, out February 10, a vinyl release scheduled for May, and a song in the recent Tom Cruise film Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow, Jeremy & The Harlequins are poised to start a classic rock 'n' roll revival. Their new song "Some Days" is the perfect cloudy day jam, giving classic rock vocals and percussion a personal touch, making for a song that works just as well in 2015 as it would in 1955. - Nylon Magazine


Just as we're getting comfortable in 2015, Jeremy and The Harlequins are already set to shake things up with the release of their debut LP American Dreamer. The 10-song album is testament to keeping
it classic, with a throwback American rock n' roll look, surf tinged guitars, and Jeremy Fury's growly accents.

We sent our Cool Buzz Q&A to Jeremy and younger brother/drummer Stevie Fury to tackle for a more personal look inside their music minds. Check out their answer below and click play on their album's first single, "You're My Halo" - Baeble Music


Right Out of Love, Jeremy and the Harlequins. This '50s-tinged track could fit right into a David Lynch film, and it makes me wish I owned a car so I could blare it with the windows down. - USA Today

Bio

In this day and age of over produced, digitized music, Jeremy and The Harlequins are a breath of fresh air. Their sound is stripped down and the lyrics are playful and honest. Nostalgic, and at some times haunting, Jeremy and The Harlequins are a trip through the early days of American rock ‘n roll. 

The band came together serendipitously after singer, Jeremy Fury (We Are The Fury), and guitarist, Craig Bonich’s (Head Automatica, Jaguar Love), latest New York City based line-up disbanded in April of 2013. As fate would have it, Jeremy’s brother, drummer Stephan Fury (We Are The Fury), returned from Paris, France to spend time with his family in their hometown of Toledo, Ohio. While in Ohio, Jeremy and Stephan began collaborating on a compilation of songs that Jeremy had written over the past few years.

After opening the vault of material, the Fury Brothers enlisted the bass talents of musician and friend, Nathan Cogan. Days later, guitarists Craig Bonich and Patrick Meyer drove from New York City to Toledo to assist in the creation of the new music. Craig had miraculously met Patrick only one day prior to leaving for Ohio and spent the entire drive indoctrinating Patrick into the sound and vision Craig and Jeremy dreamed of. Upon their arrival into America's heartland only a few days prior to July 4th, the new line-up celebrated America's independence with an impromptu first show at a local bar in Maumee, Ohio having never played together before. 

The five spent less than week in a whirlwind of rehearsals. The result was ten undeniably passionate rock 'n roll songs. Recorded in two days just outside of Detroit, at Tempermill Studios (The White Stripes, Loretta Lynn) the music is live and present; captured true-to-form by the finest analog equipment. Upon completion of the recording, the group procured the talents of producer and guitarist extraordinaire, Matt Verta Ray (Heavy Trash, Speedball Baby), for the ever-important mix.

The records rings with urgency, containing an energetic and youthful feeling bands today desperately seek, but can rarely attain due to modern recording techniques. Jeremy's vocals, recorded live in just a few short hours, punctuate the passion and gusto that is the soul of the group. These raw vocals are supported by bare guitars that rock unadultered and get straight to the point, while the melodic and present bass lines and simplistic drums, free from superfluous fills, resonate deep inside you. References to musical greats such as Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, and Buddy Holly are sprinkled throughout, yet Jeremy and The Harlequins have managed to find their own, unique voice.

We are living in a time where most of the real instruments on recordings are the recycled loops of yesteryear. Whether it is rock, pop, country or hip hop, the computer has found a way of making a guest appearance on nearly every new album. And while to some there is nothing wrong with turning the laptop into the next electric guitar, there is something undeniably magical about live bands. So, whether you want to call them purists, throwbacks or relics, at their core, Jeremy and The Harlequins are something rare in today's musical landscape. They are human.
