Port Lucian, fronted by Harriton’s own Portia Maidment, 17, ventured into independent record production in 2016, due to a desire to expand her musical range and reach new audiences. In 2017, production began for her debut EP "Sun." This release is a mixture of soft dreamy pop and powerful synth-driven melodies which draw inspiration from the new wave of psychedelia. While "Sun" is varied in sounds and textures, it comes together to create a unique soundscape of emotions. This five-piece EP explores different aspects of life in conjunction with the movements of the sun. While the music is undoubtedly new and electronically influenced, it is still very much a reminder of her connection to nature.
