Los Angeles-based band Harriet is gearing up to release their debut EP, Tell The Right Story, on January 31st. Harriet is fronted by former Dawes and PAPA member Alex Casnoff, who was inspired by his experiences as a touring musician when he wrote the band's debut.

The release's lead track is the dynamic, piano-driven "I Slept With All Your Mothers," which Casnoff says, "was sprouted from a lot of conflicted feelings. We were trying to echo that in the music. Mixing pretty ambiance and lap steel with the anxiety of the relentless piano chords and the heavy ending."

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
