The Hecks Share Heat Wave
There’s not pigeonholing the Hecks, and I think we’re all better off for that. We’ve heard a couple of tunes off their forthcoming album, My Star. A quick listen might show the band as a fun times no-wave pop spectacle, but that’s precisely why I think you’ve got to listen to “Heat Wave.” This track broods and pulses; it’s washed in fuzzy electronics with the vocals riding the vibe in a purely indifferent fashion. As any aficionado of pop would tell you, the sounds on this track, old or new, just sound like what it would be like if we were all real cool. The band moves and shifts, so there’s really no telling what their LP will bring you going forward, but we’ll know when it drops on October 11th courtesy of Trouble in Mind.
