The Head and the Heart / Press

“A local six-piece, The Head and The Heart's sound recalls some of pop's truest masters–most notably, The Beatles and Rufus Wainwright... There's a cohesion, confidence and craft displayed in the songs that sounds more like something a seasoned band nit-picked at for years than it sounds like than a debut album.”

“The Head and The Heart make a breed of infectiously catchy pop music with a good backbone. It’s a classic sound that never gets old...”

“Textured harmonies, earnest piano and almost symphonic use of strings weave together layers of Americana that feel fresh and yet achingly familiar.”

“The Head and the Heart is an album that begs to be heard as whole; the songs belong to each other. It's a diverse album--each track feels markedly different from the last-- but it moves effortlessly... There's an artfulness to this album, in both the lyrical themes and instrumental composition. As a debut LP, The Head and the Heart... should be celebrated.”

“The Head and The Heart's sweet, poignant lyrics pour out of the speakers in a sea of crafty, unexpected time signature changes with harmonies that just about stop the proverbial car... in an indie.alt.americana / Avett Brothers multi-genre encompassing appeal, all of which translates tenfold in their live performance.”

“They let their listeners have a pretty hook or two, then build until their songs reach a soaring strata of chamber pop astonishingly mature for an unsigned band...”

Seattle Show Gal

“The Head and The Heart's shows are inevitably fun as the dancing and clapping on stage spreads, breaking the crowd from their pensive appreciation of the music to active participants in the experience of it.”
