London quintet Heavy Heart have become one of my most blogged artists of the year. Their addictive blend of dream rock and crack-melodies have had me hooked within a matter of bars.
Following a series of monthly singles, their latest release ‘The Way Home‘ might just be the best yet. Regardless of its place in time, their sound is a call back to the likes of Lush, My Bloody Valentine and Ride and will always remain relevant. Filled with haunting sonic atmospherics and lush harmonies, the group have never sounded better. As new arbiters of shoegaze, Heavy Heart are one of the year’s most consistent and underrated bands.
