Oh Harry
‘Now That We Found Love’

Anyone familiar with the unconventional stylings of Swedish heavy metal covers band Hellsongs will no doubt be excited by the arrival of solo material from recently departed frontwoman Harriet Ohlsson. Going by the name Oh Harry, Ohlsson has produced a delicate cover of the O’Jays’ 1973 classic ‘Now That We Found Love’. Like a Scandinavian Regina Spektor, Ohlsson leaves plenty of space for contemplation in her sparse, gentle arrangement. Despite the anticipated gimmickry (Hellsongs take rock classics and turned them into lounge music), the origins of the song are soon forgotten once the melancholy strings and piano notes demand your undivided attention. Every note sung in Ohlsson’s sweet, caramel voice is enough to make you wish you had a broken heart to accompany it. ‘Now That We Found Love’ is the perfect soundtrack to a quirky indie romance flick. Handclaps, harmonies and a little bit of broken heartedness; what more could you want? Ohlsson’s debut album Arena Rock (named after an effect she used in GarageBand whilst recording) is due later this Spring. MP3 after the jump.
