Heart/Dancer are Linnéa Atieno and Joakim Buddee, who make up both halves of the band signed to Swedish label, Sommarhjärta. After completing a seven date European tour, comes the release of their début single ‘Outro’ on 15 June 2015.
‘Outro’ is swirling synth pop, floating on a sea of dreamy beats. Joyful riffs, dreamy synth leads, and exhilarating lyrics give off elements of acts like Shura, Of Monsters and Men, and Seapony.
In a recent interview with Poule d’Or, the duo were asked about what inspired their music:
Mostly it’s about strong emotions that we want to translate to music. A lot of times we’re inspired of other people’s songs, we listen a lot to all sorts of music. But that’s emotions too, everything is carrying some sort of feeling. It’s all about finding the right ones and expressing that in the right way.”
‘Outro’ is out now and is taken from their début album “My Heart is a Dancer” which will be released later this year.
