It’s not often that a band’s name truly reflects their sound, but when it comes to Swedish solo pop actSummer 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.
Compared to the likes of M83, WashedOut, andTennis System, Summer Heart’s sound is familiar yet all his own.
‘Yeah You’ is a second track from his upcoming collection of tracks titled “12 Songs of Summer”. He will release a new track per month throughout the year blending catchy dream-pop motifs with light washed-out nostalgic sound to capture the soundtrack of an endless summer. But there will be no singles, just music released as it becomes ready.
Summer Heart says:
“The idea behind this project is to show people what I am currently working on instead of what I was doing two years ago, which can be the case when you release an album. It’s definitely a way of challenging myself, thinking less and having more fun creating music!”
The song ‘Yeah You’ pairs electronic texture with David’s familiar glazed vocals. Summer Heart tells us: “ ‘Yeah You’ is about feeling alive and having no regrets! It’s about trying to ignore the past since you can’t change. But most of all it’s about having fun living in the present.”
Tastemaker blogs and mood-driven playlist curators have loved his tracks for years, with Hype Machine promoting Summer Heart on their‘Hype Machine Favorites Vol.1’ Spotify playlist.
The new song ‘Yeah You’ will be available worldwide on the 16th of March.
Look out for the hashtag #12SongsOfSummer to hear new tracks released every month of 2018.
