Cincinnati indie-rockers HARBOUR are asking the most personal questions in their latest studio effort, ‘To Chase My Dreams, Or To Just Lie Down?’ out now via ONErpm. Members Ryan Green (vocals/guitar), Jarett Lewis (guitar), Ryan Sulken (drums), Walker Atkinson (bass), and Devon Turner (guitar) have curated an infectious indie pop/rock sound that transfers seamlessly into their live shows. 

The previously released track, “Bahamas” was the first single to preview the new LP.  “Sleepyhead,” the sophomore single to follow on To Chase My Dreams, Or To Just Lie Down?’, brings up feelings of anxiety in a unique way. It is written as a stream-of-consciousness — the single paints a vivid picture of the monotony of daily life and societal pressures through a deceptively cheery melody, allowing listeners to dance their way through the discomfort of uncertainty. Whereas tracks like “Swimming In My Head” and “Everything’s Fine” outline more personal emotions like self-doubt and feelings of isolation.

The ten-track studio release covers the band’s feelings and various emotions throughout the global pandemic, in which HARBOUR shares:

Most of the album was written in lockdown and recorded shortly thereafter, during a time when the future of live music was still very uncertain. Now, just two years later, getting the chance to release and play these songs to rooms full of fans across the US is pretty surreal. This album is definitely our best collective work to date, allowing us to come into our own as musicians, and we hope people enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.HARBOUR

While the nuances of the album may be dark, the band’s intent is to give their fans hope and encouragement. ‘To Chase My Dreams, Or To Just Lie Down?‘ is available via ONErpm everywhere.
