London's Heavy Heart are back with a new track in what they're calling their "Song-a-Month" project. Each offering so far has been nothing short of dream-pop fantastic. For April, the band is sharing a decidedly downbeat track, 'Late to the Party', which, much to my delight, highlights the band's fixed hold on all things melancholy. Once they've compiled enough for an EP or even and LP, they'll have a hit on their hands.
Anna of Heavy Heart had this to say about 'Late to the Party':
"It was a feeling we'd shared, of being left out or left behind while everyone else was growing up and moving on. You're trying let go of your worries and hang-ups, and be a better person, or at least get through each day, but at the same time you're not quite sure if you're ready or even know how. I guess it's also a downbeat love song to that one person who knows you well enough to help you see past those things."
Time softens such things, increasing clarity upon reflection. Youth is often troubled with the immediacy of happiness of inclusion, often painfully. But with distance and space, as we grow older, we all discover our own happiness is not tied to being left out or being left behind. When we are happy, we surround ourselves with people who want to enjoy our company. Ultimately, those who love us and see us through our bouts of darkness are the people we want to be with.
