Winding layers of yearning guitars, sparse drums and angelic vocals together into one mesmerising stream, the ode to a deceased friend reaches new heights of tender beauty and sadness. Despite the heart-wrenching theme, the track navigates away from sappy territory, instead creating a sublime celebration of echoing, dreamy textures. This uplifting take on loss is best captured in the line, “I’m going to celebrate you forever.” The emotion is pure and vulnerable in its simplicity.
‘Heavenward’ is our fourth glimpse at the band’s sophomore album, following sweet garage anthem ‘Beautifully Unconventional‘, intricate crush masterpiece ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses‘ and fierce gut-puncher ‘Yuk Foo‘. Each track has been a completely new surprise, we can’t wait to find out what the album has in store when it drops on Friday, 29 September.
