“Phantom / Island” by Hearts Hearts

Electronic/experimental group Hearts Hearts’, forthcoming release Goods/Gods comes out on April 20th via Berlin label Tomlab (Xiu Xiu, Deerhoof, Mountain Goats). The new video for the band’s first single “Phantom / Island” (filmed & directed by Vienna artist Gabriel Hyden) is expansive, and contrasts elements with prisms of electronics and acoustic instrumentation.

“Hearts Hearts have cracked and evolved their electronic ballads and downbeat pop into something far more sonically expansive and emotionally soulful in this new work, driven by higher energy and a growing array of influences. The new record conjures a mix of anguish and ecstasy, taking inspiration from left field pop productions of Bon Iver, Jamie XX, and Son Lux, they skew addictive hooks into drippy song chambers, littering them with lucid samples and cybernetic production lick”s.
