Songs of Summer Series – The Harlequins

With the sweltering heat of Summer in full swing, our tastes tend to shift to music that invokes feelings of days by the pool, cooking out with friends, and steamy Summer nights.  Indie Face kicks off with a sampling of  five songs to start the perfect Summer playlist:

#1  Midwest Coast – The Harlequins

One of the hardest working bands in the Cincinnati scene, the Harlequins are setting themselves up to be one of the great bands of Summer.  Their single “Midwest Coast” could be the anthem behind all sorts of Summer shenanigans, with its psychedelic surf vibe and gritty guitar chords.  Though this video was released back in January, when they rocked this track at a free show at Downtown Cincinnati’s Fountain Square just a few weeks back, the crowd erupted into a huge beach party, complete with flying beach balls.  Even despite the oppressive heat, every single person was moving and dancing and smiling.  It was a great reminder of why we have one of the scenes in the country.  Thank you, boys.
