about

TAPES & LATHE CUTS AVAILABLE FROM GRIMALKIN RECORDS: grimalkinrecords.bandcamp.com/album/b-x

On her new album, B/X, Don't do it, Neil's Mabel Harper ruminates on love and loneliness while shifting into hi-fi and expanding her sonic boundaries. B/X features the incorporation of new eclectic influences, such as R&B and electronic dance music, into Don't do it, Neil's signature DIY bedroom sound. The album's glittery pop sheen forms the hooky candy coating on a raw reflection on the charged interplay between devotion and desire.

"The record is a stunning one, and its experimental tracks and bright, colorful tones are as captivating as they are masterful. Everything about B/X feels carefully crafted, and there’s an irresistible magnetism to the glinting pop music as Harper delves into a near-constant tug-of-war between dissonance and sheer desire."
