Starting as a bedroom project in a tiny flat above the main road in New Cross, south east London, Heavy Heart spent 2016 writing, recording and releasing a new song each month.
With a sound which The Line of Best Fit called “lush alt-rock with tremendous promise”, and Louder Than War praised as “understated and gently realised dream pop”, and with lyrics exploring themes of melancholia, depression, female objectification, mass media, obsessive love, and casual witchcraft, the resulting twelve singles formed a kind of collage, a year in the life of a band existing in this strange era, pieced together in real time, as it happened.
In 2017, Heavy Heart collaborated with vinyl-only label I Can & I Will to re-release all twelve tracks as a limited-edition LP entitled 'Keepsake', which was also distributed in Japan by To’Morrow Records, with lead single 'Fruitfly' appearing on Killing Moon’s 'New Moons Vol. IX' compilation in 2018.
On 23rd January 2019, the band release 'Bed Bug', the first of three new tracks mixed and co-produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Gabe Wax (The War On Drugs, Fleet Foxes, Soccer Mommy).
