Following the success of their first single ‘Death’, this time H A R T E B E E S T burrow deeper into sophisticated electronic pop, creating a moment that encapsulates the bitter warmth of an English summer. A dreamy haze of guitars and other worldly sounding lyrics, ‘DRUMS’ is an expansive and luscious synth laced 4 minutes of blissful guitars, ethereal keys and enchanting falsetto vocals.
With a combination of lyrical depth and throwaway simplicity, ‘DRUMS’ juxtaposes gloomy melancholy with carefree youthful decadence, placing haunting cinematic textures alongside floating euphoric hooks. Termed “melodic yet undeniably catchy” by Crack in the Road, it seems that H A R T E B E E S T are beginning to tread something very special.
