They play loud - they play soft, they get pretty - they get heavy, they sound desperate - they sound free...

Biography

Over the last year The Harlan Twins have become a staple of the Pittsburgh scene, building a reputation for energetic live performances colored with the spontaneity and conviction of elemental rock and roll.

Blending the harmony and chime of The Band and Dylan with the unsubtle and unstable energy of The Stones and Pavement, whispers of Eno, Hazel Dickens, and Mo Tucker.

Referential but not derivative, their disparate influences make them dynamic: they play loud - they play soft, they get pretty - they get heavy, they sound desperate - they sound free...

Now they’re hitting the road behind their debut album, and they would really like to play some rock and roll for you.
