Acclaim for Revel In The Drama:

“A record that propels Harvieu back under the spotlight as a grown-up pop force with weaponised survival instincts… The music gleams with a steely determination to be heard… Golden-age glamour, neon-smeared Hollywood strings and propane-fuelled torch songs… The stars, finally, seem to be right where she wants them.” MOJO – 4 stars ****

“Woozy, cinematic songs full of yearning and vulnerability… Her rich voice remains the star… This is an impressive set.” The Observer – 4 stars ****

“An exquisite return for an exceptional voice.” The Telegraph – 4 stars ****

“An album that puts her rich, romantic voice against a glamorous 1950s ballad setting… This is a celebratory, joyous return.” The Times – 4 stars ****

“Gorgeously uplifting… Harvieu’s voice is as vividly beautiful as ever.” Mail On Sunday – 4 stars **** (Album of the Week)

“Irrespective of it’s grounding in 60s and 70s soul-pop, Revel In The Drama is thrillingly fresh… This album confirms Harvieu should always have been in the driving seat.” The i – 4 stars ****

“A triumph… This life-affirming dose of dreamy retro pop confirms her great talent and lovely, silky voice.” The Sun – 4 stars ****

“A modern spin on classic pop melodrama, all strings and torch ballads.” Daily Mail – 4 stars ****

“The sweet melodies fit Ren’s songwriting shift to uplift and empowerment perfectly… A handsome return.” Daily Mirror – 4 stars ****

“With it’s timeless songwriting, Revel In The Drama boasts a cabaret-esque quality, like Nick Cave doing Broadway, it’s dark side balanced by a twist of mischievousness.” Long Live Vinyl – 8/10

“Harvieu returns at last… Strange Thing’s a string-adorned, dynamic carnival and Cruel Disguise’s twanging guitars and growling organs confirm it’s titles dark dramas… Her rich, empathetic vocal swoops gracefully from note to note.” Classic Pop – 4 stars ****

Alongside current single “Strange Thing” Harvieu has also shared videos for the previous singles “Teenage Mascara” and “Yes Please”.
