HARMS shares new single “Pop Song” via Impose | Debut EP out 11/30

The EP announcement was led by the first single, “Pop Song,” which premiered via Impose where HARMS detailed, “‘Pop Song’ was written as a comment on the expectation of ‘autobiographical’ songwriters to be authentic, and the resultant fact that if you open and up and are vulnerable with your songs and lyrics, that information can be taken and mutated and twisted by people, sometimes people who want to do you harm. However, in the end, as an artist, I’m always hoping that people accept my broken shit and that it resonates and makes people feel closer to the vulnerable parts of themselves.”
