New Tune from The Heart Strings

10616721_10153415901879596_5891930795245722178_nIt’s been a little bit since we heard from The Heart Strings, so I wanted to toss up this brand new single today to catch your ears. Songwriter Todd Roache has a producer’s touch, which is really evident in his pop constructs; you can hear the dedication to extracting each melody perfectly in every little note on this single. For listeners, it holds a bright tone, both musically and in the lyrical content, but be forewarned, Todd tells us that his music’s about to take a darker turn on his next few singles. Without further adieu, here’s your pop hit for the day.

Funky Indie Rock From The Heart Strings

TheHeartStrings1The Heart Strings is the project of London based Todd Roache, and this track, “Beautiful Abyss” is a declaration of the eclectic and funky twist he’s put on alternative rock. This song is a grouping of musical layers that combine in a lush manner; the synths waft in and out along with “oohs and ahhs” while the percussion and guitars are somewhat crunchier, adding an extra layer of texture. When the chorus soars in, you can’t help but be taken aback by everything that’s working together to make for a delightful and interesting indie rock track. “Beautiful Abyss” is out officially on August 7th via Grandpa Stan Records.
