The Robot Heart have just finisehd their debut album which is released on Bleeding Heart Recordings.
The Robot Heart have been described as “an Icelandic sounding Beach Boys” and I can totally see why. Influences range from Mum, Jonsi, Radiohead, Badly Drawn Boy with harmonies reminiscent of those Wilson brothers. Beautiful instrumentation from a 4 piece band, with harmonies being the key feature in their setup. Even more than the melodies themselves, the harmonies is what sells this band’s vocal styling.
The venue could not have been better. Taking place in St. Giles Church in London, the audience sat in pews and listened to the band’s harmonies resonate within the church’s ambience. Something quite etheral about the whole experience. The live gig itself will be difficult to follow up on album as the band are so amazing live, and the acoustics were perfection. I look very forward to hearing their attempt!
