The Harpoons are an intensely joyous dance-pop band from Melbourne. Henry (bass, percussion), Jack (guitar, percussion), Bec (vox) and Marty (percussion) are BFFLs that grew up making music together! Two of them are even brothers (Jack and Henry).
The Harpoons take inspiration from pop and dance music from all over the world, deep and shallow, new and old. The Harpoons want to make you dance, and cry, in your own personal space. The Harpoons want to share an intimate moment with you, if you want to. The Harpoons love life, and they love music.
Brothers Henry and Jack Madin write boppers and ballads that burst with harmony, singer Bec Rigby’s arresting vocal variations harmonize seamlessly and melt hearts, while Martin King (Oscar and Martin) ties everything together with his steezy beats and sultry vocals.
It’s the harmonies and undeniable melodies that envelop you when The Harpoons are on stage, one that houses bespoke marimbas and pentatones, deftly handled guitars, and analogue and digital drums like two hearts beating.
