One of pop’s rising stars, Harina, returns with her latest single ‘Around U’ – out now via FrtyFve Records.
German-born and now residing between Berlin and London, Harina has laid claim to a slew of feel good and fierce anthems following her breakout hit ‘Nothing’ in January of this year. ‘Around U’ continues this winning streak, exemplifying her craft for catchy toplines and pensive lyrics.
Harina explains the meaning behind the record, “It’s Billy Joel’s all time classic, Uptown Girl flipped upside down. It’s so easy for someone on the outside looking in to say ‘you don’t belong together’ and I guess even easier to get sucked into that mentality when people can be so judgemental. But Around U is about a girl choosing love, trusting her intuition and ignoring the rest.”
Underpinned by slick production, Harina’s sound has already piqued the interest of Spinnup (Universal), as well as the likes of Earmilk, Cloudkid and Purple Melon. With more hits on the way, it seems only a matter of time before Harina ascends into the higher echelons of pop royalty.
German-born, BIMM graduate, Harina burst onto the scene in January of this year and has earned consistent praise from the likes of Spinnup, Cloudkid, Purple Melon & Earmilk since.
“Harina’s currency is ‘hits’ and we aren’t lying when we tell you, she is loaded” Universal’s distribution platform Spinnup affirmed, and they weren’t wrong. Her most recent releases ‘Hard Worker’ & ‘My Boo’ in collaboration with Ninski were both incredibly successful with ‘Hard Worker’ amassing over 1.5m streams and ‘my boo’ fast approaching 1m, receiving notable Spotify editorial playlists & BBC Introducing Kent support.
Fearlessness, ambition and positivity is what she portrays in her songs and Harina is back to show us more of who she really is with her upcoming single ‘Around U’ due to be released on 23rd October. Accompanied by Harina’s debut music video that oozes the nostalgia of an Audrey Hepburn movie, Harina shows us her true self, the iconically graceful & empowered star she is.
Combining attitude with faultless vocals and a powerful sound, it’s only a matter of time before she achieves pop world domination. With big plans for 2021, Around U is a small taste of what’s to come.
