Dance rockers Harper and the Moths’ debut album is a glitter bomb of catchy tracks

What began as a remote recording project between friends in early 2013 has morphed into the Phoenix-based dance rock band Harper and the Moths. On July 5th, the quartet will release their debut album Dark Enough To Dance, 12 tracks that deliver glittery, all-night anthems with infusions of new-wave and post punk.

Vocalist Harper Lines and his “Moths” (who just so happen to have an affinity for staying up late), began work on the album after Lines went through the downward spiral of a serious relationship ending. When things got ugly, the fallout became his inspiration, and his outlet was music. The first single “Your Love” was written to provide closure to anyone who is at the end of a relationship, struggling to see their inner light.

“I wrote a lot on this project about the human condition of wanting somebody to share your life with. After failed relationships, Its ’s something I have craved.

These songs are designed to make people feel they are not alone in their search for happy. “You Are Not Alone” will be a common theme.
