“The Forbidden” by Summer Heart

"The Forbidden" by Summer Heart is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'.

Summer Heart, is the solo project of Swedish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, David Alexander. Best known for a nostalgic low-fi sound, David’s sun- bleached latest track The Forbidden is just the thing for those pesky winter blues. In this song, Summer Heart uses a mix of vocals, guitar, synths, bass and drum machines in the song to create his signature variety of hazy, dream pop.

Summer Heart is a featured performer at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin from March 15-20. Additionally, you can catch Summer Heart play a show at Brooklyn’s famed Knitting Factory in New York on March 23.

Taken from is forth-coming EP, the new single The Forbidden holds all those quirky attributes of David’s song-writing and production skills, the track is now available digitally.
