(Video) Heartsrevolution – ‘Not That Hard To Explain’

It feels like an age since last hearing from Heartsrevolution. Last year’s Are We Having Fun Yet? mixtape was a nice stop gap until the release of their promised LP, what happened to that is anyone’s guess?

Regardless of the back story, they have returned with a brand new track ‘Not That Hard To Explain’. Borrowing a sample from The Strokes’ ‘Hard To Explain’, it is matched with by Heartsrevolution’s recognizable feisty mix of electro, punk and hip-hop. It is ridiculously catchy but even that can’t mask the stingy lyrics. 

It’s great to have them back, even if it is just for one song. You can watch/listen to ‘Not That Hard To Explain’ below.

Heartsrevolution – Are We Having Fun Yet?

HEARTSREVOLUTION have just released a brand new mixtape Are We Having Fun Yet?. It sees the New York-based act sampling and adding beats and vocals to stuff like Marilyn Manson’s ‘The Beautiful People’, Jay Z’s 99 problems, ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ from Joy Division along with plenty of others.

This is a nice stop-gap until their forthcoming debut LP Ride Or Die is released. There’s a fair amount of anticipation surrounding this one, due in no small part to their Switchblade EP back in 2008. Shouty electro-punk at it’s very best.

You can stream/download the mixtape below along with a few tracks from their back catologue. The tracklisting is after the jump.
