    Calm and understated, Bristol’s Harvey Causon is turning heads with his deft take on contemporary R&B, percussive electronica and powerful, brooding vocal that sounds far more world wearied than his 20 years. Harvey writes and produces his own tracks, as well as collaborating with producer and flatmate, Gabriel Gifford. His most recent collaborative releases 'Worn You' and 'Branches' have been playlisted by Radio 1 as the BBC Introducing Track of the Week, played on Radio 1 Prague and added to the Burberry and Radio 1 Spotify playlists. With nods to other contemporary artists James Blake and Jamie Isaac, the ambient piano ballad has a nervous energy but it’s dub tinged rhythm, clever lyrical content and fragile yet soothing vocal set it apart. The pair are set to release the full EP 'Murphy's Hand' at the end of July. After moving to Bristol last year, Harvey quickly released his ‘Introspect EP’, a collection of songs that he had been sitting on for a while. Eclectic, but polished, the stand out song from the release, ‘Systems’ was given a remix from rising hip hop duo Cabrakid. This earned Harvey an appearance at 'Cabra’s' support slot with Loyle Carner after the rapper heard the track. In October, Harvey released his single 'Frisson' with local Bristol label Leisure Records. Not only did it gain attention from indieshuffle and Bristol Live but it was described 'an impressively diverse three minutes' for DIY's NEU Pick of the day. It has since hit 250k streams, earned spots on NME and Spotify's 'Office' and 'Left Of Centre' playlists. As his unique sound quickly gained traction over recent months, Harvey was invited to record live at the revered Maida Vale studios for BBC Introducing In The West. His impressive live set comprises collaborator Gifford and drummer Ben Toon. The band have developed playing sold-out shows supporting Tokio Myers, Puma Blue and Porches as well as multiple festivals including The Great Escape and All Points East.
