Pills – released may 27th

The Heartbeat Band - Pills

 

 

 

 

 

”Pills” is the first single from the follow-up to The Heartbeat Band’s debut album Sailor Heart. In “Pills”, the band’s songwriter Marcus Granfors deals with the fact that, in today’s society, we feel worse day by day while we all really strive to feel loved and valuable. Burned-out and lonely people choose the easy way out either to make it through the day or to end it, while sincere relationships might be the only thing that really helps. Only true love love makes us do the good and bad things we never thought we could.

Written by Marcus Granfors
Produced and mixed by Markus Sjöberg at Sthlm Songs.
Recorded by Pelle Henricsson at Tonteknik Recording.
Additional recording by Markus Sjöberg.
Mastered by Eric Broyhill at MonsterLab Audio.

”Sailor Heart” is The Heartbeat Band’s debut album. Sthlm Songs proudly presents this 8-song album filled to the brim with melancholy from the cold north of the band’s native Finland. The album is produced and recorded by Andreas Dahlbäck at Durango Recording, mixed by Markus Sjöberg at Sthlm Songs and mastered by Eric Broyhill at MonsterLab Audio.

Taking centre stage are the characteristic voices of Marcus Granfors and Felicia Eriksson with truly heartfelt and honest songwriting. The songs deal with the aftermath of breaking up from a long relationship and the resulting emotional drain, all in the timeless melodic and melancholic style that has become The Heartbeat Band’s trademark sound.

”Sailor Heart” follows the success of The Heartbeat Band’s first single ”Hands That Built”. Painstakingly crafted over a 2-year period, the album will be released and available worldwide at all major on-line stores December 16th, 2014.
