“Inspired by Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Kate Bush, it’s no surprise I Am Harlequin’s music is coated in 80s licks and fuelled by a groove bassline, her offhand style only adds to her effortlessly cool aura. – WONDERLAND
“One To Watch […] she’s the beautifully cool pop star we’ve been waiting for” – THE INDEPENDENT
I Am Harlequin is young, East London-based singer/songwriter/producer Anne Freier, who returns with her second single this year called ‘Dance With Anyone’, due for digital release on 26th June 2015 via Stop Being Cute Records.
‘Dance With Anyone’ is co-produced by BMG producer Domzilla (Lulu James) and is an uplifting slice of summer-time soulful pop sprinkled with a little disco that’s set to get any dance- floor moving. In Anne’s own words the single ‘…is about that experience where you find yourself surrounded by strangers, perhaps dancing wildly at a party, and then you spot that one person in the crowd – the one you really want to be sharing this moment with.’
Citing influences as diverse as Michael Jackson, Kate Bush and Rickie Lee Jones, this talented and eclectic songstress will also be featuring on a second Sony Records single release by Belgium duo Hermanos Inglesos. To date, I Am Harlequin has already gained good support from various UK radio stations, including BBC 6Music, BBC2, BBC4 and Q Radio and recently supported San Cisco in a sold-out show at the Dome.
