Live on the
Stemming largely from her all-female power-ballad influences, Harley presents a show of stellar songwriting – with heartbreaking lyrics, driving choruses and a unique understanding of her surroundings. Her songs represent everything it means to be young and in your 20s; through inexperienced relationships, moving from a small town to a big city, and beginning to find your feet in this big, bad world.
Stellar debut single ‘No Chance’ introduced Harley Mavis. The folk-rock gem turned heads; receiving radio and television attention, including airplay on both Triple J and Triple J Unearthed, and the video featuring on MTV Australia’s new music video show.
Her single, ‘Thief’ premiered on Triple J’s Home & Hosed and continued to attract attention with the additions to Spotify Playlists ‘New Music Friday AU & NZ’ and ‘Broad Chords,’ added to rotation on both Double J and Triple J Unearthed and described as the ‘Top 5 Uploads to Triple J Unearthed’ in its first week, as well as a rotation add to music video show, ‘Rage.’ Unapologetic and intriguing, Harley Mavis’ performances will have you energetic and on your feet just as quickly as slow dancing to her epic ballads.
Supported by Eilidh, this evening will be the launch of the B-Side version to Harley's latest single 'Thief' where she explores the intimacy and story behind the original song in a stripped back, acoustic arrangement. ‘Thief (Acoustic)’ taps into her struggle with mental health and writer’s block after coming out of a toxic relationship.
