Hearts and Rockets Share Clown Town
Melbourne’s Hearts and Rockets are no stranger here at ATH, and with a brand new single and 7″ out there in the world, seems like the perfect time to revisit the duo. For me, there’s really two reasons to love the band: self-described bratwave and hooks. Listening to Kalindy’s vocals gives you this growling sharpness, most likely aligned with early riotgrrrl performances; I love that sort of bite, tying into my youth. But, I also love great hooks, and this track doesn’t miss out there, tossing a heavy pulse from the rhythm that immediately gets your heart racing. If you’re tapping your toes and bobbing along, perhaps you grab that new 7″ split with Skink Tank.
Love their creativity.
