Heaps have released a new track, ‘Softly’, which uses tough guitar riffs to open before bursting into a fierce chorus that overwhelms the listener.
The dynamic alt-rock anthem is an experimental, eclectic and rhythmically swelling discovery that is fuelled by its ethereal flourishes.
Their first single marries synthetic discovery with dense analog tradition and is part of their upcoming debut full length, ‘What Is Heaps’.
Warren Frank, lead singer said: “Heaps is a necessary change. A process of determining that. A space. A freedom to create without inhibition.
“We have a tendency to view each other as a finite work. Everyone is a process. Everyone is going to change.”
Charged within a roadside argument and struck by the juxtaposition of chaos against a peaceful summer night; the song is an earnest meditation on emotional intelligence, what you present and who you are.
Heaps, in another melodic lifetime, were known as The Kents. In that collective, they were featured in on Hockey Night In Canada, MLB’s World Series, 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, Canada’s Walk Of Fame Emerging Artist and earned radio support from CBC, including George Stroumboulopoulos.
Through their travels, they shared stages with Sloan, The Sheepdogs, The Trews, The Strumbellas and Hollerado. Their final release ‘Within Waves’ elevated them beyond 5-million Spotify streams.
