Harriet – “No Way Out”

on November 13, 2012

No Way Out

“No Way Out” by L.A. band Harriet is a haunting track, recounting lead singer Alex Casnoff’s near-death experience with weed. He says, “It doesn’t inspire feelings of strength or masculinity. […] It’s embarrassing to have died from weed.” The honest and literal description of his experience is confessed both lyrically and musically, pushing emotional piano chords out in front of a solemn electronic soundscape. It’s a powerful sound for such a young band.
