Early memories of lace and the scent of flesh have inspired the duo of instrumentalist Tuukki (known from power electronics acts such as Cloama and Strom.Ec) and vocalist Paile (who once played drums in Beastmilk) to co-operate as A Heart Beats, whose debut single Dazes The Mind is now out on the Svartronix label. The duo’s influences come from new wave, anarcho pop, Bronski Beat as well as the legends of Soviet synth pop, Alyans.
The band’s music is born out of separate, often disparate musical elements colliding and resulting in delicate but exciting pop music that basks in dark light.
– I am interested in challenging my own routines and conceptions. As soon as I notice a formula somewhere I try to escape it intentionally. At times I just get bored, but perhaps I just essentially have an enormous interest in the unknown and the irrational, much more than empirical facts. We are not rational creatures, so I think examining and even embracing one’s own contradictions is worth it”, comment’s vocalist Paile.
Svartrox unleashes the single Dazes The Mind on January 31st, together with a music video directed by Johan Snell. The sensitive, erotically charged video is available on Youtube now.
