NEW ALBUM TILL THE TOMB RELEASED TODAY
“Their psych-pop is a blend of skippy beats, nimble guitars, joyful melodies, and falsetto yelps. If you have any love for Tanlines, Animal Collective or, to a lesser extent, Vampire Weekend, you will find this ditty a pleasurable listen.”
“This is ambitious, outward-looking pop unafraid to play by its own rules.” 4*s Q Magazine
“Wildly creative and hugely unconventional brilliance” Clash
Beaty Heart are Peckham-based alt-pop trio Charlie Rotberg, Joshua Mitchell and James Moruzzi, who released their acclaimed debut album Mixed Blessings in 2014. Now they return with a reinvigorated new sound, influenced by the likes of Lee Scratch Perry, Arthur Russell, Roots Manuva, Pharoah Sanders and Floating Points. Beaty Heart juxtapose their musical and cultural influences from a captivatingly eclectic variety of sources, weaving an array of samples, instrumentation, and percussion into their sound to create something that is unique and distinctive.
Over the last year, Beaty Heart have been in the studio working on their second album Till The Tomb with producers David Wrench (FKA Twigs, Caribou, Jungle) and Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Wilko Johnson),which is set for release on 29th July. The band have recently signed to Harvest Records in the US, home of Glass Animals, TV on the Radio and Best Coast, amongst many more.
Flora and Soft Like Clay were the first introduction to the band’s forthcoming new album, Till The Tomb. Their next single Raw Gold was co-produced by friends Jungle. Raw Gold doesn’t leave the listener hanging, rapidly opening with its infectious pop hook and incredibly compelling chorus. Combined with its glittering beats and alluring percussion, this deliriously brilliant song is sure to be a standout track of the summer.
Both their live and recorded music is accompanied by original video and artwork, with the latter seen on the sleeve art for Raw Gold, which follows suit with the Flora and Soft Like Clay artwork, both created by Yves Rulliere.
