Once considered an art experiment, Harlequin Jones have honed their originality and skill into something more tangible. Amanda von Loon's trashy elegance on piano along with rich, lush, deep vocals compliment Jesse Arcadio's part jazz-master part scrap metal machine drummings to result in a synergy of moxie, chemistry and talent. In 2006, these attributes were demonstrated with the release of their first self titled EP. The EP was welcomed as something refreshing by listeners. Their second record release in 2011 deemed reviews worthy of saying that "Harlequin Jones was one of the most underrated bands on the earth."
In 2012, Harlequin Jones have just released there most recent record titled Overflow. Produced by the esteemed Dean Dichoso, Overflow is Harlequin Jones greatest achievement to date. It cycles from fast paced punk style like "Pass The Time," onto the other extreme of a heartbreaking ballad such as "Overflow."
Harlequin Jones has been cited by others as a type of music that has often been compared as "Fiona Apple meets The Dresden Dolls." HJ fans have also revealed to be big Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, and Tom Waits fans.
