Steven Ansell and Laura-Mary Carter are pleased to announce the release of new single “Heartsink” on August 16th.Taken from their brilliant new album Fire Like This’, “Heartsink” is a trademark BRS track and live favourite.
“Heartsink” is a prime example of the DIY spirit that runs throughout the album. Recorded on analogue at Liverpool studio, The Motor Museum, the tracks frantic harmonies and scorching guitars creates a perfect rock song as Steven explains:
"We took the energy and simplicity of that four to the floor beat and layered it with a guitar sound as aggressive and industrial as possible. We never want to make anything too easy to get into, it'd be boring. It's a pop song that we tried to destroy from the inside out basically”
The single comes backed with the track “Into The Night”, a cover from an episode of one of the duos biggest influences; “Twin Peaks”. Originally recorded for a session on Zane Lowe, the reaction to the cover was so positive that making it a b-side made perfect sense!.
