VIDEO PREMIERE: The Pearl Harts – ‘Suck It Up’ (Live At Anchorbaby Studios)

A classic rock and roll anthem full of pounding drums, commanding vocals and raucous guitar licks, London-based duo The Pearl Harts have shared an exclusive live video of their track ‘Suck It Up’. Recorded in the summer of 2020 and filmed at Anchor Baby Studios in Kent, the band teamed up with producer Dan Lucas and videographer Sean Hardy to make the slick new visuals, which reflect the power and charisma of the duo’s live performance.

The Pearl Harts – like many bands – were hit hard when the covid-19 pandemic put a stop to touring in March 2020. The duo used their time in the subsequent lockdowns to remotely write & record material for a new album, and once restrictions were lifted they began performing a series of socially distanced gigs, including a drive-in show with VC London, the UK’s only all-female motorcycle crew.

Now, the pair are busy preparing for an interactive online gig with Blacksanta at The Fiddlers Elbow on Thursday 20th May. Whilst audiences are still not permitted inside, they’ll be able to experience the band’s set live from their own home, with the ability to be seen and heard by them in the venue. Fans can also join friends in groups, video chat in the virtual bar and continue to text chat whilst the performance unfolds. Tickets are available here.

Watch the video for ‘Suck It Up’ below for a taste of what to expect from The Pearl Harts on the night.

VIDEO PREMIERE: The Pearl Harts – ‘Pullin’ My Brains Out’

Full of raucous guitar riffs, thudding beats and hefty vocals, London-based duo The Pearl Harts have shared a video for their new live single ‘Pullin’ My Brains Out’. Taken from the band’s new EP Live At The Drive-In, which they’ve released today (11th Dec), the single is accompanied by a monochrome video shot during the band’s post-lockdown drive-in show earlier this year.

The Pearl Harts – like most bands – were hit hard when the covid-19 pandemic put a stop to live music in March. As a band who have spent years cutting their teeth on the live circuit, the idea of performing from their bedrooms via Zoom didn’t feel quite right for Kirsty and Sara. So, once Lockdown 1.0 was lifted, the duo decided to put together a “dystopian drive-in” gig in South London. Teaming up with their friends VC London – the UK’s only all-female motorcycle crew – they set up a stage in an industrial yard and unleashed their raucous rock and roll sounds on to a socially distanced crowd.

Whilst recording this new EP briefly quenched the band’s thirst for playing live to an audience, The Pearl Harts are hoping that in 2021 things will be a little different. “[While we were] no longer able to write and play together in the same space, we embraced technology [which] allowed us to write songs remotely for a new album that we’re really excited about,” the duo explain. Here’s hoping we’ll be hearing this new record in the flesh as soon as it’s safe to do so again.

LIVE (Photos): Camden Rocks, 02.06.19

Last weekend saw the return of North London’s celebration of all things rawk, Camden Rocks; an annual festival held at various venues across Camden, featuring an array of bands new and old.

Our photographer Jon Mo was lucky enough to head over on Sunday to catch some of our favourites…

Treating The Hawley Arms to their sweeping, dreamy sounds were Indian Queens.

Pals of GIHE and all round awesome people, Tiger Mimic, delivered a special acoustic set for Kick Out The Jams at Rock ‘n’ Roll Rescue.

Riotous duo The Pearl Harts blasted out their seething desert rock at The Monarch.

Having previously wowed us live at The Five Bells, HAWXX delivered their frenzied rock anthems at The Fiddler’s Elbow.

Friends of GIHE, immense rockers The Muffin Heads, blasted out their tremendous raging force at The Dublin Castle.

The Dublin Castle also played host to GIHE faves Bugeye and their unique, sparkling disco-punk power.
