Old Kind of Magic is the fifth long-player from Native Harrow – Stephen Harms and Devin Tuel – and arrives two years after they left Pennsylvania for a new life in Sussex. The couple initially lived in Brighton, where they recorded the album, before settling in rural Sussex, where they filmed the bucolic video for “Heart Of Love”.

“Our “Heart of Love” world was built out of love and gentleness,” comments Devin of the track. “A song that slowly drifted its way to me and sunk in deep, it sings of the passion in soulmate love. The deep love that you may search the world over for. The love that shelters you from the weathered winds of time and space. Buoyed by the love freely shared between Paul & Linda McCartney in a series of home videos they shot during their time living and loving in Scotland in the early 70s, we wanted to share, for the first time, a glimpse into the love we share. A connectedness that no doubt informs our art, our path, and our wild ways. We spent an evening (like many others) playing, walking, and basking in the fields near our Sussex home.”

With Old Kind Of Magic, Harms and Tuel have self-produced a work that is simultaneously their most sweepingly expansive and delicately intimate album to date. It is at moments revelatory, and at others beautifully heartbreaking; a showcase of Tuel’s finest writing. The pair have crafted an album that places itself distinctly between the two musicians and the tapestry of sounds they are regarded for.

The couple enlisted Alex Hall (their collaborator for 2019’s Happier Now and 2020’s Closeness) to add his signature drums and percussion throughout, along with an incendiary piano part on “Used To Be Free.” Joe Harvey-Whyte added his celestial pedal steel to “Heart of Love” and “I Remember” and violinist Georgina Leach layered a one-woman string section over “As It Goes” and a galvanising quartet on “Long Long Road”. Mixing was completed by Hall at Reliable Recorders in Chicago, IL and the record was mastered by Guy Davie at Electric Mastering in London.
