Big riffs, both acoustic and electric alike, come crashing into melodic ribbonry of the vocal variety with ease in the new single/video combo from David Haerle, “Go Do That With Sharon,” but despite the heavy wallop of the ensuing rock energy, there’s nothing fluff-filled about this new release. When it comes to making simple alternative Americana, you don’t need to incorporate a lot of frills into your sound, and in a bid to adhere to the standard parameters of a long-forgotten DIY model, Haerle stays away from indulgence altogether in this track – and emerges from the studio looking rather brilliant.
From the start of the song, the tension in the instrumentation, and specifically the beat, starts to unravel under the weight of the harmony. Though it’s joined by some really fine tracks on the Death Valley album, “Go Do That With Sharon” just might be the most cathartic composition David Haerle presently has in his discography. Both the music and the lyrics are delivering as much might as can be mustered from within the recording studio here, and though Haerle sounds particularly beastly in his shredding of the guitar solo three and a half minutes in, he never translates as egomaniacal or arrogant in this effort for a second.

David Haerle issues a stirring addition to any summer indie playlist with the release of “Go Do That With Sharon” in the single format this June, and if you haven’t already heard the song, I’d highly recommend checking out its music video the next time you’re browsing new content. There are a lot of talented singer/songwriters making an imprint on pop culture in 2020, but if you’re looking for something both familiar and forward-thinking, this is the man to go see. He’s got some phenomenal chops, and they’re definitely being put to great use here.
