Listen to Big Harp’s New Quick-Hitting Single ‘It’s A Shame’

big harp, it's a shame

Big Harp, the Los Angeles / Valentine, NE-based rock duo, did things a bit backwards: After two cross-country moves, a marriage, and two kids, Chris Senseney and Stefanie Drootin-Senseney settled down and formed a band. After two very good albums with Omaha-based Saddle Creek, they’ve moved to Fat Possum to release their newest single “It’s A Shame.”

Sharp and swirling like a buzzsaw, the song clocks in at just under two minutes. It’s hard-hitting and anchored in a great pop melody, but not overstuffed, thanks in part to the stewarding hand of stalwart producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Districts). The combination of Chris’s Julian Casablancas-esque vocals and Stefanie’s solid bass result in a sharp-around-the-edges gem. Stream it below:
