Howling Bells unveil another new tune from their forthcoming album ‘Heartstrings’ which is out on 2nd June on Birthday Records. The brilliant ‘Your Love’ is a perfect example of the bands dark sweeping widescreen sound. A compelling and beautiful track full of brooding cinematic Lynchian drama which starts off like the dark sister to Blondie’s ‘Union City Blues’ replete with chorus to match the melancholic, yet uplifting melody of James at their very best.
The recording of ‘Heartstrings’ was apparently an intense process, which saw the band recording a track a day for 11 days. “Having a deadline means you’re forced to make crucial artistic decisions in a very short time. You don’t have the luxury of overthinking. I feel this process shaped the album. As a result, you become incredibly connected to the musical spirit of the band” says frontwoman Juanita Stein. “We loved every second of it”.
