Los Angeles’ singer-songwriter Harmony shares her new track “Shoplifting From Nike,” the second offering from her forthcoming debut solo EP Dystopia Girl due August 25th via Harmony’s Fantasy Corp. Produced with Wyatt Bernard and Austin Corona, “Shoplifting From Nike” arrives with a playful video directed by Morgan Maher portraying Harmony and friends in a prismatic arcade, strutting on Hollywood Boulevard with femme furries, and outrunning security guards.

The new song follows Harmony’s lead single “Good Things Take Time,” which arrived with a video also directed by Maher and was produced by Wyatt Bernard, Dylan Brady, Francis Brady and Micah Jasper and was mixed by Kayla Regan.

Speaking about the meaning of the new single, Harmony shares, “‘Shoplifting from Nike’ is about trying to function under the weight of all things and creating a personality that is so shameless that you believe you can survive it. It’s about modern spirituality, materialism and disassociation. And the 2008 housing crisis. And being annoying and epic. And having fun and not taking life too seriously… but also being deeply invested in reality.”

Harmony is a singer-songwriter who has made a name for herself with her poignant lyrics and delicate, evocative voice. As one half of canonical indie band Girlpool, Harmony’s songwriting has often been praised for its striking honesty and emotional clarity. With her foray into pop music, she brings the same poetical fervor and olympic emotion.

Born and raised in Hollywood, amidst a chimerical bricolage of glimmering fantasy and brutal destitution, Harmony has always been taken by contrast. Glitz and grime abreast, her hometown prompts questions of artifice and authenticity, instilling in her a belief that being is a creative act. Navigating this tentative relationship with reality, Harmony sings of infinity worlds, reality restarts, and angel kisses from the next dimension. Harmony’s debut EP Dystopia Girl is a thrilling exploration of the “holographic lie” of an enchanted reality, guided by her unwavering faith expressed in lead single “Good Things Take Time.” Her boldly vulnerable songwriting is self-aware and raw, exploring the complexities of the human experience with a depth and sensitivity that is rare in pop music.

A Libra through and through, Harmony is obsessed with balance, with the union of opposites. The Dystopia Girl EP is composed of both ballads and bops, traversing themes of certainty and doubt, mysticism and cynicism, and fantasy and reality. It is at once viscerally passionate and gracefully impartial; both gravely serious and tongue-in-cheek frivolous. The Dystopia Girl EP is a compact emotional whirlwind of euphoric highs and devastating lows felt to their fullest and presented in perfect harmony.
