Check out the new Harrison Rimmer live video, for ‘Berlin (Acoustic)’.
Hailing from Blackpool, UK, Harrison Rimmer’s gruff, passionate sounds have resonated with many over the years. With influences ranging from Frank Turner via The Boss (Bruce Springsteen) and Nirvana, Harrison builds emotive, introspective music to inspire. Taking a more pop lean on new single, ‘Berlin’ (out June 4), Harrison discusses the change in musical direction for this effort was prompted by a chance encounter while on tour in Germany:
“I wrote this we were in Wuppertal. Earlier that night I met a girl and somehow she was convinced to come to a gig after meeting me in a bar (as well as go out on a date) So I was trying to be cool and collective and decided to write a song that would hint I’d like to go out with her.
But I was trying to be subtle, that subtle she didn’t get it. But we did end up together, and I experienced a lot of Germany as well as listening to a load of 80s stuff like Phil Collins, New Order, Whitney Houston. As well finding a love for stuff like Kygo, Broilers, Die Toten Hosen to name a few.”
