HowlingBells have recorded 11 tracks in 11 consecutive days for their upcoming album ‘Heartstrings’- a feat that would make Jack White and his now infamous voice-o-graph machine feel somewhat threatened.
Despite this speedy process, the Australian four piece’s latest single ‘Your Love’ manages to be the musical equivalent of when the sun shines just enough so you can walk home from work on an otherwise dire day…uplifting yet somehow holds an undeniably melancholic undertone. Think dreamy shoegaze with a bit more bite to it and you’ve got the idea.
Both ‘Your Love’ and ‘Heartstrings’ are set to be released on June 2nd so save your pocket money or start selling your old wardrobe online (or in shop/car boot/side of street makeshift stall constructed from cardboard boxes and tinfoil, so long as a profit is made) now.
