Harry Teardrop is the solo project of 19 year-old Chinese/Vietnamese American artist Harrison Li. Li describes himself as a “journalist of the human experience”, striving to address the confusing side effects of evolving consciousness. Li draws inspiration from early 2000s emo & indie rock bands that he grew up listening to fused with ballads from the 1940s & 50s. The Deli Mag describes, “The Indie-pop wunderkind’s songs operate within very traditional realms of pop, dreaming of idyllic scenarios in the city with your crush, going on drives and truly living life. These themes may sound trite on paper, but it’s the modern production flourishes that make these vicarious adolescent excursions so intoxicating." Li is currently a sophomore at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. All songs are written and produced by Harry Teardrop. All images are taken by Drake Li.
