The golden-piped sexy beast known as Har Mar Superstar is getting ready to charm the pants off the ladies and gentlemen of the west coast when he hits the road this month. Har Mar recently released his latest album, Dark Touches, and has been on a hot streak ever since.
The album’s addictive lead single, “Tall Boy,” was co-written/co-produced by Greg Kurstin (Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Lily Allen), and made waves when it was revealed that it was originally submitted for Britney Spears. The dance floor jam took on a new life when Har Mar performed it on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and as MTV.com noted, he “tore down the house with a performance of his body quaking new single.” The song’s video brought another tidal wave of Har Mar fever. The futuristic looking clip features Eva Mendes, Eric Wareheim (“Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”) and Alia Shawkat (“Arrested Development,” Whip It!).
Other musical collaborators on Dark Touches include John Fields (Andrew WK, Jonas Brothers, Rooney), The Faint’s beatmakers Clark Baechle and Jacob Thiele, singer-songwriter Adam Green, P.O.S. of the Rhymesayers collective, Neon Neon’s Boom Bip, Flowers of Doom, and Samaire Armstrong. In addition to his fertile musical career, Har Mar also appeared in the Drew Barrymore film Whip It! last year and will team up again with the its leading ladies Alia Shawkat and Ellen Page (Juno, Whip It!) to produce a new HBO pilot titled “Stitch N’ Bitch.”
