Heat and the Heart Lets Be Still

Seattle’s The Head and the Heart have unveiled “Shake”, the first track off their forthcoming sophomore album, Let’s Be Still, due out October 15th through Sub Pop Records. While their self-titled debut had plenty a lithe folk songs, this latest number features a bit more swagger, with the undulating bassline and punchy piano displaying strong influences of ’70s rock. Still, the band manages to maintain a sense of hushed intimacy by playing up the vocal interplay between Jon Russell and Josiah Johnson, whose harmonies are as tight and alluring as ever. Listen in below.

The band will debut “Shake” live tomorrow (August 6th) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. No doubt they’ll also bust it out when they hit the road this October/November. Consult their full schedule below.
