After the recent announcement of their new album Heartbreak Rules, Boston band Jumper of Love have the shared the LP’s second single, “Singing By The Sink.” Heartbreak Rules is set to arrive less than a year after Horse Jumper of Love’s third full-length, Natural Part, and marks a sonic shift for the band. Across eight completely new songs, two reimagined tracks from Natural Part, and a cover of The Smashing Pumpkins’ “Luna.” Horse Jumper of Love are on tour now, in the middle of a U.S. run with LSD and the Search For God and Panchiko. The band have also announced a UK/EU tour set for September.

Vocalist/guitarist Dimitri Giannopoulos discussed the new single, saying:

“I was inspired by my grandmother singing old Greek folk songs in her kitchen. Singing by the sink represents a comfort and simplicity in life to me. It means happiness. The song was meant as an answer to an insatiable pursuit for meaning in the world beyond comfort. The scenes in the song take place outside the kitchen window as she is singing. All separate little worlds going on at the same time.”

Heartbreak Rules was written and recorded solely by Giannopoulos, but it is undeniably a Horse Jumper of Love release. “When I started writing, I didn’t really know what it would be,” he explains. “I went into it with no intentions.” Recorded with a bare bones setup in the Catskills with longtime band collaborator, Bradford Kreeger, the mini-album is full of hushed and unvarnished recordings that allow Giannopolous’ voice and lyrics to shine. “As I play music more, I just want to play quieter,” he says. “We’re rehearsing these songs as a full band now and we’re not blasting our amps like we used to–it feels really good. I think it has to do with our confidence level at this point. I used to play loud because I wasn’t confident in my vocal delivery or my lyrics, and now I want to showcase those things.”
