We first encountered Summer Heart when he guested on one of our favourite albums of last year, the fantastic Braided Memos by Sameblod. Since then we have listened to and enjoyed his sounds on a regular basis yet oddly, not once has anything made its way to the blog. Well, all that changes now with his latest single, “Beat Of Your Heart”, which was released yesterday.
As you would imagine with an artist name like Summer Heart, the music of David Alexander is perfect for the warmer months. The sky is clear and bright and the melody tinkles like ice in a glass, condensation glistening on the outside as the cool drink battle the warm day for supremacy. Alexander’s vocals ring out like the call of a moistened finger as it glides atop the rim of a crystal wine glass before gently vibrating out into a wispy echo. Summer by name, summer by nature, you’ll want this playing out as your sunshine adventures unfurl.
“Beat Of Your Heart” is out now and available from the Summer Heart Bandcamp page.
