Moody and edgy guitars support a soft and breathy vocal performance that will make the listener feel lighthearted. The melodies are familiar descending lines that I cannot quite place. “Human (Heart)” is organic meaning it continuously builds on itself with driving rhythms. While this track lacks an edge in a full rock and roll distorted guitar and head banging atmosphere there is something to be said for a subtle aggressiveness that makes the artist come off as level-headed with their message as opposed to some heavier acts who’s message can be lost in a sea of imitators. Grace Gillespie put out a good track with “Human (Heart)” so I’ve attached two ways to listen below!
