How the Music Critic Score works
Buy Harlecore from Amazon
Popular music has been borrowing '80s synth sounds for what seems like a while now, both in the Top 40 and otherwise, with some examples sounding almost parodic at this point. (The Weeknd's wildly popular "Blinding Lights" comes to mind. ) But what about the '90s? Love Inc.
Danny L Harle chews pop music into a sugary sludge. From the effervescent radio refractions of his early singles for PC Music to more recent tracks for Rina Sawayama and Charli XCX, he melts down familiar forms into their basest elements, delighting in the gross, glowing sounds that pool around the edges. Each track showcases his surreal sense of humor alongside his love for saccharine melodies and alien sound design, a philosophy that extends across mediums: His most iconic piece of merch is a T-shirt emblazoned with the words HUGE DANNY.
