Hearts Fail / Press

“Since the band's inception a decade ago, Wagner has crafted well-honed darkness-meets-electro-pop. With an authoritative voice and a firm grip on both reality and angst, plus the chops to craft great hooks and catchy melodies, Wagner creates music that makes listeners want to dance through the darkness.”

“Tracks like “Always” and “Stormcloud” brings a familiar Hearts Fail upbeat tempo and style that in a live performance will give crowds something to dance too whilst other tracks like the title track “The Tower” brings a very dark yet still melodic contrast to the album and shows Ed’s ability to mix Hearts Fail styles and leaves room to explore lyrically.”

“Wagner is clearly trying to do something different to stand out from the usual post-punk, goth rock revivalists and to a large extent he’s succeeded . . . this is nostalgically-flavoured music performed with a flourish . . .”
