Video of the Moment #2282: The Head and the Heart

Following on the success of their previous single ‘All We Ever Knew’, folk-pop group The Head and the Heart have released a kitschy, ’90s-style video for new track ‘Rhythm & Blues’. The band wanted to lighten the mood a bit after the reminiscent yearning of ‘All We Ever Knew’ (which we featured as our Video of the Moment # 2173 back in August of last year), so they recruited director Michael Reich and an eclectic team of Los Angeles-based actors to create a completely different kind of visual representation for ‘Rhythm & Blues’. In the promo video below, Reich equates the sweaty, squirmish anxiety of being in the spotlight on stage, performing to a jaded and potentially unreceptive audience, with the song’s lyrical theme of declaring your intentions in a romantic relationship.

Both ‘All We Ever Knew’ and new track ‘Rhythm & Blues’ appear on The Head and the Heart’s third album ‘Signs of Light’, which was released last September on Warner Bros. The Head and the Heart will spend much of this spring and summer on tour in North America; you can find their upcoming live dates on the band’s official Facebook.

Six-member American folk-pop group The Head and the Heart are primed and poised to release their third album ‘Signs of Light’ on the 9th of September. The new LP will be the band’s first release on major label Warner Bros., after two previous records on acclaimed indie label Sub Pop. The album’s lead single ‘All We Ever Knew’, featured in the video below, is already receiving air play on U.S. radio as the band prepares for a lengthy North American tour in October and November. (Support on select dates of that tour will be played by youthful Hertfordshire alt-pop star Declan McKenna, which we featured quite a bit in our SXSW 2016 coverage earlier this year.) Ahead of their American live dates, the Seattle sextet will play a single UK show in London at Hoxton Hall on the 28th of September.

Following on the success of ‘All We Ever Knew’, The Head and the Heart have recently released another track from the new album, this one titled ‘Rhythm & Blues’. The YouTube stream below is audio-only, but it’s another nice taster for both the upcoming LP and its accompanying live tour dates, promising a reinvigorated and re-energised sound from the now-veteran band.
