Heavy Light’s mature songwriting and arrangements move beyond standard rhythms and chord progressions offering a complexity that draws us in, urging us to pay stricter attention, wanting more, driving us on.
Through the course of their songs, strategically add elements that keep our ears constantly on their toes: interesting melodies, big vocals that become dreamy when accompanied by compelling harmonies and synth, warm electric guitar tones which offer unexpected (and at times, heartbreaking) chord changes, anticipation-building rhythms, and riveting bass lines. These elements entice the ear, engage us.
Their songs aren’t simple, but they are easy to consume. Not in a lowest-common-denominator sort of way, but because they are performed, arranged, and mixed masterfully. The listener can just sit back, relax, and enjoy each beautiful auditory element, one after another, in perfectly-strategized succession.
