Sometimes it is the band which best describes themselves and their sound. After all, they are the ones creating the music and have a more intimate understanding of its origins than anyone else. So we’ll tell you that we’re offering a free download of Heartlay’s song “See You Under” and then let the artist explain further.
Classifications aside, the music found on Heartlay’s debut EP, Injection (out November 2014) is simultaneously soulful and abrasive. Said group founder, Aaron Sadrin: “Heartlay is an alternative/industrial metal band created from a sudden urge to create deep songs, with a emphatic hook. Brought up on piano, switching to guitar, and now, vocal interest has transformed and opened up these visions of music as a whole, without any limits. Incorporating elements from industrial rock, alternative metal, modern electronics, progressive rock, etc., Heartlay’s issues are conceived and performed by French multi-instrumentalist Aaron Sadrin, writing all the music, from intense vocal melodies to heavy guitar hooks, sonic experimentations, and modern influenced soundscapes.”
