This week’s download comes from The Heavy’s latest album “Hurt & The Merciless.” You have seven days to download their song “Miss California.” You can catch The Heavy perform at this year’s Rock The Green festival on Sept. 17.
The Heavy make blazing, urgent, infectious rock-soul records. When it came to making their fourth album, Hurt & The Merciless, they wanted to make their tour miles count. As one of the UK’s best live bands, they have spent most of the past decade on the road. Along the way they have released three albums, honing and evolving their sound whilst perfecting the sucker-punching fervour of their live sets.
Hurt & The Merciless marks a musical culmination for the quartet; a mesmeric blend of their trademark rock’n’roll and funk and soul grooves with added sonic experimentation. It’s also a personal marker in the sand, too. Swaby, who’d been through a period of about personal heartache and upset, poured himself into the songs proving there’s a lot you can draw musically from an emotional resolve.
