Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

The Head and the Heart/Lucius

When: Thu., May 29, 7 p.m. 2014

The Head and the Heart creates songs as a collective. With six members in the group, this can result in an eclectic sound, which is exactly what you get on their latest album, last year’s Let's Be Still. The band’s shifting orchestral pop style doesn't seem scattered or sloppy but results in a solid amalgam of songs that vary from synth-pop to folk ballads. "Another Story" is a provocative reflection on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings; it’s full of somber guitars and quivering vocals. The lead single "Shake" has a driving kick drum that pushes you through a jaunty alt-country tune full of piano, hoots and hollers. The band brings a true form to these variations with a genuine sound that’s warm and melancholy. (Gonzalez)
