In this Brave New World of almost unlimited access to music and collapsing old-school business models, I’m still kinda flabbergasted that something as powerful as Heart Beach’s first album a) isn’t a worldwide chart-topper; and b) is available for free on the group’s bandcamp page. They came out of the gate fully formed, with spare, searing tunes of loneliness and alienation.
The great news is that the gloriousness of Heart Beach is looking to be anything but a flash-in-the-pan. Brittle is the first single off of their upcoming second album, Kiss Your Face, out Nov. 11, and it more than continues their winning streak, with emotive male-female vocals and an achingly harsh guitar line. Heart Beach are the real deal, and if we’re all very, very lucky, they will be around for a very long time.
