Summer Meltdown FestivalArtistsThe Horde & the Harem

The Horde & the Harem


The Horde and the Harem play catchy high-energy songs that are also complex and orchestral in nature. Layers of lush four-part vocal harmonies and bright trumpet lines blend together over a tough driving rhythm section and sizzling guitar riffs. Their shows are fun, danceable, and always unique!


Press Highlights
The Horde and the Harem have successfully played major venues all up and down the West Coast, as well as notable festivals including Bumbershoot, Folklife, The Capitol Hill Block Party, and SXSW.

“Just about everything about The Horde and the Harem feels distinctly Pacific Northwest. ..But it’s the sound of the band’s brand new album, “A Long Midwinter,” that should drop any observant listener into a misty grey mindset. This is indie-folk-pop with a ragged sense of style, where jangling guitars and an understated rhythm section lay a foundation for boy/girl harmonies and all-together-now choruses that’ll take over your ears. It’s the Now Sound of the Northwest, and The Horde and the Harem do it as well as just about anyone.”
