dizzybird met The Harlequins at SXSW because of Gringo Star. Label owners Nicole LaRae and Brian Hoekstra met The Harlequins in Austin, in 2013, while members of the band were filling in for Gringo Star at a backyard showcase. Lead singer-songwriter Michael Oliva, invited the label to see his bands set later that day at a small Irish club.

It was ferocious. The Harlequins were solid as can be!

When it came time to share the rough sketches of One With You, Oliva sent his songs to dizzybird, who were all-too-receptive. After a year of recording, Oliva and co. had 12 fuzzy, scorching, tracks ready for the vinyl treatment. These songs find sonic kinship with the manic style of Thee Oh Sees, while tipping their caps to the garage-pop perfection of the Kinks.

This is The Harlequins first proper LP. See above about being ferocious.
