And so the British Indie streak continues. What can I say? The UK is host to a cornucopia of talented, young indie bands with bright futures. Each brings their own sound to be appreciated.
Today’s across-the-pond posse is The Loose Hearts, featuring their new song: Behind Your Eyes. This tune details a broken hearted love story. The emotionally charged lyrics of Luke Papini is what drew me to this song. He delivers his heart-felt vocal performance with a certain authenticity that draws the listener in to the story. The vocals are certainly the driving force in Behind Your Eyes.
The Loose Hearts formed in 2010 at the University of Liverpool (I wonder if they know of The Juveniles — also of Liverpool). Consisting of four members: Papini (vocals/rhythm guitar), Chris Mitchell (lead guitar/back up vocals), Ciarán Steward (bass/back up vocals), and Joshua Hill (drums/ back up vocals), The Loose Hearts are currently working on their second studio album, which has yet to have a release date attached to it. The band’s first album, How We Are Now, was seen as a successful debut to the music scene, and now they look to continue that success. How We Are Now is available via iTunes or Amazon, and on the band’s Soundcloud for streaming
Another day, another new British indie band that I’ve found, enjoyed, and decided to share with you all. I hope you enjoy this new heart felt tune from The Loose Hearts as much as I do. I’ll be keeping up on them as they come out with new songs and their eventual sophomore album. I can’t wait. I can tell you for a fact that this song got my earz wet when I first heard it, and I hope it also induces you to Get Your Earz Wet.
