heavy on the heart is an alt rock band from Long Island. Their sophomore single, ‘Not Now, Love’ is a versatile sonic boom as they beautifully blend multiple rock subgenres like post- grunge, melodic punk, hard rock, soul rock, and even stretch to shoegaze formations. And as their banner suggests, they are known to delve into the dark enclaves of the heart to dilate them with lilting stream-of-consciousness narratives. Listeners of Nickelback, Linkin Park, and Creed are sure to enjoy the 90s style of this band.

The track opens with gunning riffs, glassy and melodic. At the drop of a beat, it stretches with overwhelming riffs, slapping beats and evocative vocals. In the chorus, the riffs turn into a fuzzy shoegaze-like mist, a sort of distortion that is detailed with stunning shreds. The band delves into the instability of difficult relationships, groping at melancholy, resignation, and despair. When we get to climax, the gush of shoegaze engulfs the reverent grunge riffs, hyper beats, and the vocals to give them a dazed shimmer. Listen Now!
