The Head And The Heart
WebsiteThe Head And The Heart
The Head And The Heart makes music so damn warm and soulful you might be tricked into running outside barefoot in search of a campfire. The instrument-driven, folky six-piece band evokes a sentimentality familiar to the sounds of older-generation Americana with sweet, artful lyrics and layers of violin, tambourines, and clapping that actually work. Hailed for its solid musicianship, engaging shows, and a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young-esque sound, the band first met at a Seattle open mic night in March 2010 and opened for Vampire Weekend just five months later. The Head And The Heart self-released its 2010 self-titled and sunny album, later signing to the venerable Sub Pop Records, which issued a remastered and expanded version of that debut in 2011.
