CINCINNATI - Psychedelia, surf and noise rock meet head on in the world of The Harlequins.
On its website, the trio — songwriter/guitarist Michael Oliva, drummer Rob Stamler and bassist Alex Stenard — touts earning an award for “best use of reverb.”
Sit back and listen to some of that award-winning sound as we talk to the band about its artistic flair and its new CD in this Bunbury 2013 edition of "Rocket Queen."
The Harlequins, who first formed in 2007, are celebrating the release of a new 7-song EP with an Aug. 10 show at MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., in Over-The-Rhine. They're also performing Aug. 16 at Southgate House Revival, in Newport, Ky. as part of its AYE Music and Arts Festival.
