Heron Shares Single “Splashdown”


via Popdust


Heron is a four-piece musical collaborative from the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds. Comprised of two guitars, bass, and drums, their bottomless sound is innovative, compelling, and cinematic. In their upcoming second full-length record members Ben Blick (guitar), Boyd Lewis (guitar), Eric Morelli (bass), and Nate Blick (drums) have crafted a seamless musical narrative, leaving behind the sweeping instrumental ballads of their 2017 debut, and clawing their way into a sound that is at once dark and visceral, spacious and lovely. The single, ‘Splashdown’, makes up a weighty piece of the this project’s breadth and beauty.

Two years ago, Heron burned a path across the sky with the debut of their first full-length album, You Are Here Now. “Of all the promising new bands to emerge in the past several months, Heron may have the most exciting potential, possessing a rare kind of chemistry that can’t be manufactured…” wrote music blogger David Zeidler, calling the project, “An invigorating masterwork.” The record’s transcendent track, “Shores” has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and Spotify’s Deep Focus playlist. Its inflammatory counterpart, “Ender” is a musical alumnus of NPR’s All Things Considered, and the introspective “Archives” landed a leading role in Headlights: A Ride BMX Film. The band was voted one of the Post-Rock Listener’s Choice “10 Best New Acts of 2017,” and You Are Here Now hailed among its “50 Best Releases of 2017.”
