Accessory - The Debut Single - June 2018
Harry and The Chicks' debut single 'Accessory' came out everywhere on June 21st 2018, along with her limited edition debut EP on disc. 'Accessory' is a feminist anthem which coincides with her DIY concept music video. The music video features Harry playing a housewife in a dystopian kitchen set in the 1950s. Describing herself as 'a walking and a talking mannequin', the classic working husband shows her no interest and in a surprising twist, Harry's housewife character meets herself in two identical opponents and leaves to find life outside the box. Accessory hit 2.6K views on youtube. 'Accessory' was also recorded in Japanese. Harry and her Japanese tutor, Mathew Bonnon translated the song.
Time - The New Single - May 2019

Harry gets real in the self directed and edited music video for 'Time' which she describes as her moving family portrait. The video sees Harry and her band on stage, joined by her two nieces beside her as backing singers. Between the live footage are home videos from Harry's childhood and the final touch shows her mum and sister in the audience. Time reached 1000 views in 3 days and the music video premiered on LOCK Magazine. Time has 1.5K views and was played on BBC Essex's Vintage Vinyl Hour hosted by Mark Punter.
"(Harry's) debut release “Accessory” is a great first dive into the recording side of the music industry.
I immediately fell in love with this track and had it on loop for weeks, its a perfect combination of original singer-songwriter integrity and your typical pop musical arrangement with lyrics to keep the listener enticed and wanting more!" - Gary Cunningham, blogger
"‘Time’ is a strong follow up to ‘Accessory’, taking more of a dramatic approach instead of a straight up pop-rock track. Harry and the Chicks is influenced by a huge variety of artists, including MARINA and various well known rock bands. Mixing all of this together in the studio creates quite an individual sound that you can’t help but get drawn into." - Adam Falkingham, ART WILL FALL
"‘Time’ is an introspective look at what her time on this planet means to her, over delicate acoustic strums that build into a big indie hit. (...) With this great knew, she is clearly working her way to the top of the indie pecking order." - George Press, LOCK MAGAZINE
"HARRY & THE CHICKS is headed by Harry. A majestically talented gal, with a plan. A plan to sweep through your consciousness with adept flows of galant musical tones, touching the very fibers of notions about self-absorbed antithetical. (...) ‘Time’ was written by her 16 year old self, thinking about her fears of aging and of the future contained within it. Journey has just begun. And what a way to keep the momentum. Look for ever more outrageous music from Harry as the season roll on." - COME HERE FLOYD, USA Blog
