Heavy Heart Short Info

HEAVY HEART formed in New Cross, south east London in 2014. That year they released two singles and a cassette tape demo, which were featured by the likes of NME, DIY, and GoldFlakePaint, as well as getting airplay on BBC London, Amazing Radio and California's DKFM. Over the following year the band played Truck Festival for BBC Introducing and appeared at 2015's CMJ Music Marathon in New York.

In 2016, Heavy Heart embarked on a project to write, record and release a new song each month, building support throughout the year from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Little Indie Blogs, Dork, 6 Music and Fresh On The Net. During this time, the band also started working with vinyl label I Can & I Will Records, who went on to release all twelve songs as a limited-edition LP called Keepsake in March 2017 (http://bit.ly/KeepsakeHH)

Lead single Fruitfly was chosen as a Future First on Phil Taggart's BBC Radio 1 show, and also got some featured airplay from Steve Lamacq at 6Music and John Kennedy at Radio X. The album was subsequently distributed in Japan through To'Morrow Music, and has picked up a following on college radio in the US (DKFM, WMFO, WJCU, WVPB).

In January 2018, Fruitfly was included on the Killing Moon label's New Moons Vol. IX compilation. Heavy Heart are now working on music for a second album, to be preceded by an EP in Spring 2018.

"Sumptuous - a graceful and rewarding listen" - NME Radar

"Brilliant, nicely fuzzy 90s influenced guitar pop banger that sits perfectly alongside Wolf Alice, INHEAVEN and co" - Dork

"Think Belly and Throwing Muses...this will get under your skin on first hearing” - Turn Up The Volume

"A song that positively blossoms... another impressive stride forward" - GoldFlakePaint

"Elegant songwriting...a truly exciting new indie band" - Killing Moon

"They’re not fucking around...does well to stay ahead of the pack" - DIY

“A heavenly, mellifluous dreampop collection" - Little Indie Blogs

"I’d liken the band to haze pop greats Pains Of Being Pure At Heart with a bit more bite” - Austin Town Hall

“You’re in the presence of a band that can captivate a crowd whilst connecting intimately” - HiddenHerd

"One of the most addictive songs of 2016, an unassuming and gentle dream-rock anthem, both melodic and atmospheric in equal measure" - Podcart

"A transcendental, mesmerising alt-rock track that will have you wearing out the repeat button" - Adventures In Music

"Reminds us of all of the awesome parts of the 90s, full of airy, dreamy, shoegazey goodness” - The Revue
