Harvard of the South Debuts “Descent”
Substream Magazine has an exclusive look at Harvard of the South’s newest song, Descent.
Harvard Of The South might not be a name you know yet, but odds are you’re familiar with the parts of their sum—the band is led by Longwave/Hurricane Bells frontman Steve Schiltz and is fleshed out by three members of the platinum-selling rock band Blue October, Justin Furstenfeld (guitar/vocals), Matt Noveskey (bass) and Jeremy Furstenfeld (drums). The quartet recently released their debut EP, Miracle, and we are happy to bring you an in-studio performance video of the gorgeously subdued track “Descent” from it. Jeremy Furstenfeld comments:
“I love the dark, very minimalistic approach to this one. Throughout this whole process, I wanted to try and keep strings off the songs. Blue October has strings, so I wanted to stay as far away from that as possible. In the end, the song practically begged for a violin. We added a violin at Steve’s Ole Studios in Brooklyn while on a day off from a Blue October tour.”
