Harlequiin is the moniker for composer and producer Rory Simmons’ musical endeavours. The multi-instrumentalist crafts electronic sounds that melt into R&B territory and overflow with emotion. The latest release, “Clock That’s Stopped”, is the second offering from his upcoming EP.
“Clock That’s Stopped” is almost dizzying in the swells and swoons of layered sounds. Elliot Cole provides guest vocals that glide over the twisty electronic lines while a restrained clicking beat pulses through. “Tie yourself to a clock that’s stopped / hold your breath for a year,” the lofty lyrics suggest amidst no shortage of groove.
