Hot on the heels of sublime single, ‘Bed Bug’, which was released last month the London outfit Heavy Heart have shared a transfixing and unnerving video to go along with it.
‘Bed Bug’ itself is spellbinding; a bright, shimmering tune from the get go, Heavy Heart explore the worlds of ‘90s indie rock, shoegaze and dream pop over the course of four-and-a-half minutes sprinkled with yearning, melancholy, hope and glistening guitar lines and a massive sound. Jangling guitar riffs and crisp but haunted vocals grab you attention before plunging into a soaring bittersweet chorus full of lamenting heartache with a lush backdrop of shimmering strings as ‘Bed Bug’ goes huge on the hooks and choruses. Delicate but powerful, layers of guitars, fuzz, distortion and whirring are moulded into something beautiful, transfixing you as it ekes out a perfect space between light and shade.
‘Bed Bug’, the first of three mixed and co-produced by Gabe Wax (The War On Drugs, Fleet Foxes and Soccer Mommy) and a new EP is expected this spring,
