Heyrocco describe themselves as ‘Disney grunge’, and I’d say that was a pretty accurate description. They’re like a sweet kid with pigtails and a doll that will turn around and kick your shin when you look away.
This Charleston trio have just released new track ‘Elsewhere’ after the success of ‘Mom Jeans’. Heyrocco are mellow yet full on, they’re nostalgic but not purposefully, they’ll make you into a smitten kitten and then whip it out from under you.
The breezy melodies are not what you would expect as a pairing for their occasionally harsh lyrics. Like ‘Santa Fe’, with lyrics, “Tonight I’m gonna break you’re heart, into a million tiny perfect shards”, how they make it sound like a cutesie love song is a true achievement.
They’re not due to cross the pond until April, when they’ll play at Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough. But watch out for them playing at SXSW festival in Texas next month.
