It’s not so often that a band’s name truly reflects their sound, but when it comes to Swedish solo pop act Summer Heart (David Alexander), you can expect just that; hazy, sun- bleached tracks that are the perfect anthem to remembering hot July nights filled with skinny dipping and sleeping in.
Following the release of countless EPs and singles, including the most recent release, 2016’s Colours EP, Alexander wrote a lot of music, including two full-length albums that he eventually decided not to release. Now, he is set to release second full length 101 in August 2017, a piece of work that is decidedly, uniquely, confidently Summer Heart. Recorded in Malmo and Stockholm, Sweden early 2017, the record was inspired by Alexander’s time in NYC, discovering the city and observing the city’s residents. Summer Heart, recently dropped the latest single from 101 “Hotel Beds”, which is now available to stream.
“The record can be seen as a ten track love story, with ups and downs and all the in-betweens… never being satisfied, always wanting more, grass is greener on the other side.” Alexander says. With inspirations being taken from more than just music (think style, photography, literature, nature,).
Quote from David Alexander on “Hotel Beds”
“Hotel Beds is about touring, about going from city to city, hotel bed to hotel bed. About meeting new people every night. It’s about a feeling of being detached from reality. Don’t get me wrong. I love to tour but after a while it becomes a big blur… the lyrics were written in the back of a tour bus. It was recorded in Stockholm, mixed in Brooklyn, and mastered in Jersey City.”
