Heir ‘Better In Silence’

Heir celebrate the announcement of their tour in April with the release of their new song, ‘Better In Silence’. Following their previous single, ‘Restless’ the band continue to display class and courage with another carving of irresistible DIY-pop music. 2018 saw the band launch their own collaborative arts night, Blueprint. The event brings together bands and visual artists for a display of high quality creation. Heir also spent the latter half of the year working with producer Ken Scott (The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John).

‘Better In Silence’ is a glorious light airy indie number grounded with a sublime elastic bass rumble and sticky beat slaps. Heir flesh out their sophisticated, polished sound with crisp production, shimmering electronics and luscious melodies. It’s refined and chic with a swanky funk flex glimmering through the rich basslines, jangly guitars and rhythmic bounce. The smooth vocals caress and soften this honey melody with a sweet coo, lush harmonies and dreamy falsetto while the zesty guitars add a dash of vitality and juicy sting to the track. Richly weaved this song cruises along sun kissed vibes, laid back tones and heavenly melodies ready for that perfect chill time listening.
