A few years ago sisters Elle and Avery O’Brien were living on opposite sides of the world. Avery went travelling abroad, exploring and working across Asia and Australia. Elle moved from her hometown of Kelowna to Vancouver after completing her degree in Microbiology. After months apart, living such disparate lifestyles, they did not expect to be reunited by a family tragedy, a serious dirt biking accident that left their brother in a coma.

Avery caught the first flight back to Canada and together they tried to manage their family crisis from home. There were months of uncertainty, but finally the news came through that their brother would survive and make a full recovery. Their shared fear and pain had shaken their world and left them unsure where to go next, but it also brought them closer together. It was during this time of reflection and introspection that Elle and Avery decided to pursue their passion for music together as Harlequin Gold.

Elle O’Brien on “Take Me Home”:

“Take Me Home” it about how time will chisel and change you until eventually you’re not the person you once were. Home is no longer a place but a state of mind and what used to scare you suddenly becomes your refuge.

“Take Me Home”
Lyrics

Sold all I own and packed my bags into the night
Drove alone until I finally reached the ocean side
Pulled me closer till my legs they slowly numbed

Take me home

Love
All the knots I’ve tied are pulling at me tight
Thoughts of longing only call me in the dead of night
There’s only six main strings that bring me back to you

Take me home

Take me back from the rain
Right before the days
I was stripped from all I know

Take me home

Lost it all into the ocean
Found it in the end
Lost it all into the ocean
Found it in the end
Lost it all into the ocean
Found it in the end

Take me home

Take me back from the rain
Right before the days
I was stripped from all I know
Take me home
