‘The Forbidden’ is the first track to be released from the upcoming EP by Scandinavia’s Summer Heart.
With the signs of spring finally on their way, now might be the perfect time to soak up a new release from the solo project of Swedish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, David Alexander. Best known for a nostalgic low-fi sound, this sun-bleached track is just the thing to nudge those winter blues.
‘The Forbidden’ sees Summer Heart uses a brilliant mix of vocals, guitar, synths, bass and drum machines to create his signature variety of hazy, dream pop.
If you’re heading that way, be sure to catch Summer Heart at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin from March 15-20. He’ll also be playing a much-anticipated show at Brooklyn’s famed Knitting Factory in New York on March 23rd.
