Born out of the love of storytelling, Harlow’s Monkeys is the musical project of San Francisco songwriter and producer, Tommy P. Known for his visceral compositions, the artist is all about connecting with his audience with creative and elating expositions of familiar experiences. Their predominantly rock soundscapes are accentuated by the wonder of synths, softness of americana, and the blues of folk. In his new dreamy single, you don’t have to change if you don’t want to, Harlow’s Monkeys uses cerebral narratives, soothing melodies, and comforting vocals to craft mesmerizing perspectives. 

Imagine watching a romantic montage of all the moments in your life. That feeling of opaque and overwhelming nostalgia is what this song’s fabric is made up of. Watch as the flames of classic rock melodies transform into misty acoustics that are contoured by hooking synths. Using reiterative lyricism and smooth baritones, an endless loop of ruminative tenderness forms a hypnotic reverie that you escape into. 

Since their debut in 2017 with the single, Lucky, this alternative rock collective has released six singles and one LP. And with each release, a new flavor of an unassuming genius unravels. So be sure to check out their discography, you will not regret it! 

Available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube Music!
