Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar was born ten years ago, when Tillmann was living in Minneapolis, playing guitar-based indie rock. The Har Mar idea, he says, was "a reaction to boring indie rock and how people were taking themselves way too seriously, and any aspect of playing and touring was no fun after a while, and I realized if I go to a dance party and sing an R. Kelly song on a couch, the girls are going to go fucking crazy. So I started transferring that to the stage and doing more R&B oriented songs and it really was a no-brainer after I'd done it a few times. Like, 'why don't I just make this gross, why don't I just start writing songs like that?" And as soon as I did, it was obvious, it was like a light bulb went off and I went on my way and got more and more aggressive, and the shows became this weird exercise in sexual tension, and I really learned how to play with that fire and make it work for me.
See Through
See Through is the new project of New York native and multi-instrumentalist/singer James Pollis, previously of Your Nature. His debut record was recently completed at The Rumpus Room in Brooklyn, NY, with Co-Producer Albert DiFiore (Sinkane, Caveman, Francis & The Lights). Joining Pollis in the studio were drummer/percussionist Chris Egan (Adam Green, Solange Knowles, Lightspeed Champion, Turing Machine), percussionist Mauro Refosco (Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Byrne, Atoms For Peace) and bassist Brett Bass (Regina Spektor, Bernie Worell). A release is expected some time in early 2013.
