Harry Teardrop

Harry Teardrop is pop perfection, will be performing live at Baby's All Right on 08.02

It can be embarrassing listening to previous generations of artists create songs they envision as teenage anthems. Not only is it impossible to create that intangible feeling of what it’s like to be a teen when you’re so far removed from it, but who honestly wants to be a teen again after you’ve lived through it once? That question is quickly answered by indie-pop wunderkind Harrison Li, who performs under the Harry Teardrops moniker. Many of Li’s songs operate within very traditional realms of pop, dreaming of idyllic scenarios in the city with your crush, going on drives and truly living life. These themes may sound trite on paper, but it’s the modern production flourishes that make these vicarious adolescent excursions so intoxicating. The newest release from Harry Teardrops is titled “Mercedes Benz” and it perfects this unique formula. Bedroom pop never sounded so glamorous in its youthful longing; stylish guitar riffs and trap-inspired drum patterns create a snapshot of what it’s like to be young through the morose and crystalline prism of Li’s summery hooks. “Mercedes Benz” is a wistful digital collage of exuberance and heartbreak and arguably the best Harry Teardrops song to date; you can catch him performing at Baby’s All Right on August 2 and stream his music below. -Tucker Pennington


Harry Teardrop premieres dream pop “Chinatown” single

Harry Teardrop makes the kind of hazy, daydream-inducing bedroom pop that you can get lost in. New single “Chinatown” is no exception, but it works the smooth, jazzy undertones to more soothing ends. Teardrop—a.k.a. NYU student Harrison Li—crafts indie music that’s unafraid to be pop and, in this case, unafraid to be ‘80s style romantic. Originally written for Li’s senior prom as a slow dancing song for his band to play, “Chinatown” is a lo-fi ballad with nonchalant cool. Listen below and be sure to catch Harry Teardrop opening for Dolly Spartans on February 11th at Trans-Pecos. –Cameron Carr</p>
