On this perfect Friday for new music, newcomer Austin Harms has released his gripping new BLOOD EP.

Clocking in at a clean 14 minutes, the four-track project is a non-stop whirlwind of emotional lyricism and breathtaking production, as Harms admittedly draws inspiration from the likes of Bon Iver and Frank Ocean.

Hailing from a farm town south of Fresno, Harms is now based in Los Angeles. Having lost his father to brain cancer back in 2015, he notes that much of his material has been the result of his own grieving process while also reflective of his struggle with depression and anxiety.
