The music mixes catchy dark hooks with lush, low female vocals.

Once considered an art experiment, Harlequin Jones have honed their originality and skill into something more tangible. Amanda von Loon’s trashy elegance on piano along with rich, lush, deep vocals compliment Jesse Arcadio’s part jazz-master part scrap metal machine drummings to result in a synergy of moxie, chemistry and talent. In 2006, these attributes were demonstrated with the release of their first self titled EP. The EP was welcomed as something refreshing by listeners. Their second record release in 2011 deemed reviews worthy of saying that “Harlequin Jones was one of the most underrated bands on the earth.”

In 2012, Harlequin Jones have just released there most recent record titled Overflow. Produced by the esteemed Dean Dichoso, Overflow is Harlequin Jones greatest achievement to date.
