Harkin has announced her second solo album, ‘Honeymoon Suite’.
The full-length follows on from 2020’s self-titled solo debut for the former Sky Larkin vocalist, who has also featured as a touring member for Sleater-Kinney, Wild Beasts and Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett’s Sea Lice.
Set for release on 17th June, the news comes alongside a first single, ‘Body Clock’.
Speaking about the video for the song, Harkin explains: “I was a big fan of [director] Pastel Castle’s work and felt like this song would be a perfect fit. I wrote and recorded it during lockdown in a flat with no outdoor space. My brother loaned me a Nintendo Switch and I found solace in games with large maps to explore. Songwriting and gameplay can both have the power to transport and the video Pastel Castle has created takes me on a beautiful and perilous quest.”
Pastel Castle adds: “The video for ‘Body Clock’ is a piece of frame-by-frame pixel art animation, which I had the best time making here at my little home studio in Leeds. Many days were focused entirely on tailoring the movement of Katie’s Sprite / Avatar to align with the mood of the track. I’m very happy with our collaboration and feel inspired now to go on a bit of an adventure of my own.”
