Summer Heart

‘You’ll adore these muffled melodies and dolorous, drifting elegies.’ – The Guardian

‘Lovely dream pop.’ – The Fader

It’s not so often that a band’s name truly reflects their sound, but when it comes to Swedish solo pop act Summer Heart (David Alexander), you can expect just that; hazy, sun- bleached tracks that are the perfect anthem to remembering hot July nights filled with skinny dipping and sleeping in.

Following the release of countless EPs and singles, including the most recent release, 2016’s Colours EP, Alexander wrote a lot of music, including two full-length albums that he eventually decided not to release. Now, he is set to release second full length 101 in August 2017, a piece of work that is decidedly, uniquely, confidently Summer Heart. Recorded in Malmo and Stockholm, Sweden early 2017, the record was inspired by Alexander’s time in NYC, discovering the city and observing the city’s residents.

“The record can be seen as a ten track love story, with ups and downs and all the in- betweens... never being satisfied, always wanting more, grass is greener on the other side." Alexander says. With inspirations being taken from more than just music (think style, photography, literature, nature,), 101 feels a lot like the soundtrack to a home video from a long ago roadtrip or a summer barbecue with friends. While you might get the dream pop vibe, (akin to bands like Washed Out, Blood Orange, and Toro y Moi), Alexander’s sound is familiar yet all his own.

Cannons is an indie-electro band from in Los Angeles, CA formed in late 2013 incorporating lead singer Michelle Joy, Lead Guitarist Ryan Clapham and Paul Davis on drums and keys.

Cannons artfully melds organic and electronic sounds with an influential background based on 80's synth, 70's R&B/soul, current deep house music and electronic production.
