Harlequin Jones rebel against any easy categorization, calling the songs roughly "pianopunk, and blues." Some onlookers also consider them as the cult genre dark cabaret. The music mixes catchy dark pop hooks with lush, low female vocals. Once considered an art experiment, Harlequin Jones have honed their originality and skill into something more tangilbe. Amanda von Loon's trashy elegance on piano along with rich, lush, deep vocals compliment Jesse Arcadio's part jazz-master part scrap metal machine drummings to result in a synergy of moxie, chemistry and talent.
