It’s an ambitious project. However, London quintet Heavy Heart are not fazed. Here there are, eight months into their plan to release a song a month in 2016 and they’ve just dropped what might be the gem of the bunch so far, ‘Fever Dream’. Melding spacey, dream pop vocals with a more alternative rock musical approach, the track sways slowly in places but ultimately possesses an impetus and drive that places the track somewhere between Alvvays and Elastica. The lush and transcendental hooks of the track sneak up on you. It’s the kind of track that you suddenly realise you are singing along to after just the third listen. Maybe having a little bit of a dance in your kitchen too while making coffee and toast.
Catch them with HAWK @ Servant Jazz Quarters, London on September 15th. Buy tickets here.
We’re off to listen to rest of the group’s tracks from 2016. We recommend you do the same.
