Harroland are a four-piece alt-indie band from Reading. Unique vocals from front man Michael Kennedy fuse with Steve Tabor’s synthy guitar, Kate Kennedy’s bass synth and harmonies and Stu Roberts' calculated beats to create an eclectic blend of dark indie and pop hooks.
"They are a subversive, hard to categorise Reading indie-rock four-piece with singing siblings. Their melodic synthy sound with guitars, keyboards and drums has a slightly dark and haunting feel, but they aren’t overtly miserable either. Kate and Michael Kennedy’s vocals have a very distinctive, rather un-Reading mid-Atlantic twang making their song Never Back Down sound like some old defiant classic."

“The best new band in Reading.”
- Steven Siddle, Club Velocity, 2018.
"This indie-rock band is so refreshing! There is no other band out there that I can compare them too because they have their very own distinctive sound. However, if you ask them, they will tell you they have some influences including Radiohead and Fleetwood Mac. Lead singer, Michael, has a unique singing voice and sings with a passion. He is vocalay complemented by sister - Kate, who knocks out a mean backing vocal as well as bass lines and melodic riffs on the keyboard. Energetic guitarist, Steve is a joy watch on stage. He too has has own sound and and clearly a great passion for the music, using his guitar to create, mimic and complement the melody with a range of effects. This is a new band on a journey to the top! Catch them in a small intimate venue while you still can.You will find them, at present, regularly playing in an around Reading."
