HAERTS – Wings


HAERTS, a quintet out of New York (but with origins hailing from Germany and England ) has recently released their first  single “Wings” that could be describes as a sort of sunlit, joyous dream-pop with funky plucked bass and massive Tears For Fears-like guitar solos, that serves as a much welcomed contrast to the misty shoegaze that currently buzzing contemporary dream-pop. Singer’s Nini Fabi voice sounds a bit southern, almost a bit of Nashville-country meets The Bangels. The uplifting music and the melancholic lyrics make a beautiful contrast: “People never smile to say goodbye / Leaving means there’s nothing left to try / But I broke my wings for you / I smiled as you untied our love for good”.

For us that actually were around when the 80’s turned to 90’s, it’s one of those brilliant pop songs that remind you of everything and nothing, rooted in the past but lives in the present.
