Heavy Heart – ‘Bed Bug’ – Alt-rock that hurts and dreams in equal measure.

London’s Heavy Heart return with ‘Bed Bug’, part dream pop, part alt-rock hard-hitter.

The heady groove that surrounds Bed Bug, the new release by London’s Heavy Heart, evokes the image of falling happily through a cartoon cloud, it’s pure bliss. This is nicely juxtaposed with a 90’s alt-rock riff which comes down hard, but fair.

Anna Vincent’s vocal straddles the washed-out cool of Baltimore dream pop favourites Beach House, whilst still remaining hypnotically ever-present throughout a track that allows you to dream and hurt in equal measure.

The band note about their new single, “Bed Bug is a nocturnal love song exploring obsession and lethargy, sex, blood and dirty sheets. It’s about staying in bed all day and staying awake all night, feeling your skin crawl and your nerves itch. It’s also about the beauty and agony of loving someone to the point of self-destruction; picking the wounds open again just to feel the way it felt the first time”.

Whilst Heavy Heart‘s roots stem from a bedroom project within a tiny south London flat, the overwhelming emotion and raw power on display with Bed Bug feels more like it was fleshed out on a coastal road trip amidst the deep throws of summer romance.
