Harlequin Jones / Press

"One of the most underrated bands on the planet.HJ has the rare advantage of appealing to both underground fans and mainstream fans alike. I cant wait to see what Harlequin Jones has up its sleeve next."

“Harlequin Jones are an original, enthralling, exciting and occasionally disturbing proposition. Straddling the worlds of pop, blues, dark cabaret and rock, but finding a peculiar niche in between. Their weapon is the strength of their songs, and their sheer melodic might is surely capable of converting even the most jaded ears. Amanda Von Loon’s voice is a thing of full-blooded power, her deep tones alternately stern and sensuous, sweet and severe. Every track here is an absolute blinder.. catchy verses and super-sized choruses that emphasise the band’s stupendous songcraft. The song "Worried Ugly" takes us into twisted, black-hearted blues, which metamorphoses into lush, baroque pop with a gargantuan avalanche of a chorus, again bolstered by Jesse Arcadio’s superb drumming and subtle yet powerful guitar work. Harlequin Jones already possess a canon of instantly classic tunes. Their future will surely be bright."”

"Harlequin Jones music is a refreshingly different, but dark mixture of blues piano, beating drums and daunting vocals. The Los Angeles duo create a set of songs that indulge singer and pianist Amanda Von Loon’s talents with the extensive work of Jesse Arcadio’s jazz-crunching music. The LA twosome have made music that their fans will devour and that will be released in their energy at live shows."
