After nearly a decade apart, long standing partners in musical crime Julie Edwards (aka ‘Heisenflei’) and Marc Smollin (aka “M”) have reunited under the moniker Heads are Heavy – returning with a mysterious video for an equally uncanny song, “That Sounds Okay.” Shot in Puglia, Italy, filmmaker Giuseppe Valentino’s dreamlike, dystopian scenes of fields ablaze, abandoned homes, and industrial devastation recalling Antonioni’s existential classic Red Desert provide a perfect backdrop for the song’s dense soundscape – all lumbering lo-fi drums, swirling electronics, reluctant handclaps, and distorted, detached male/female vocals clearly numbed by modern life.

”The only limitation for Heads are Heavy is that there are zero limitations,” says Edwards, “In the studio, we did whatever the fuck we wanted – trying every trick available to further scientific exploration of moods, emotions, and thoughts, to defy tropes, trends, genres, to accept music creation as a therapeutic outlet for our own cozy, personal darkness.”
