The sound of the Montreal band Heat is all at once fresh and familiar. Equally calling to mind the 1970s proto-punk of New York City and the sprawling psychedelia of 90s UK shoegaze.
Heat’s year start with the reissue of their self-titled EP which has been renamed Rooms on April 27th on Kitsuné. Rooms includes two exclusive tracks, the Strokes –esque “All I Wanna Do” and “This Life“ which surely describes best the band’s sound, along with the catchy “Susifine” which is also on the label’s latest compilation “Kitsuné New faces II” !
See them live in festivals at SXSW and Great Escape or on tour in North America & Europe in late spring.
