Revel in the Drama


Artist: Ren Harvieu
Label: Bella Union
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 03 April 2020

Bella Union release Ren Harvieu's new album, Revel in the Drama. It represents a bolder take on her timeless pop classicism, a diary of struggle with self-belief and a celebration of liberation and survival...

Revel in the Drama is a wonderfully diverse album from Ren Harvieu. It opens with The Cardigans-esque 'Strange Thing'. Elsewhere 'This Is Our Love' feels as though it could have been an '80s single by The Pretenders.

The 12 songs (48 min, 08 sec) rattle along at a fair old rate with each track being totally different from the last. 'You Don't Know Me' stands out like a sore thumb; a rose in between the thorns. It's by far the most memorable track, thanks to its classical music presentation.

Revel in the Drama is a joyous celebration of life.
