Album Review

The debut full-length album from Brooklyn's Haerts showcases the group's ebullient, atmospheric pop. Centered around the creative talents of lead vocalist Nini Fabi, keyboardist Benjamin Gebert, guitarist Garrett Ienner, and bassist Derek McWilliams, Haerts also employ several other backing musicians on the album to help flesh out their layered synth and guitar sound. For her part, Fabi has a sweetly resonant voice that sometimes brings to mind the Cardigans' Nina Persson and sometimes leans more toward Stevie Nicks territory. As a band, Haerts have a similarly balanced aesthetic that flows easily between the artier end of '80s adult contemporary and the buoyant, blissed-out synth-pop. Cuts like "Wings” and "Giving Up” are emotionally uplifting, immediately hummable songs that wouldn’t be at all out of place in an ‘80s John Hughes film. Think something along the lines of the Cars' “Whose Gonna Drive You Home” meeting Lone Justice's “Shelter,” and you won’t be too far off from the sound Haerts achieves here; especially on cuts like the moody “Call My Name” and expansive “Lights Out.” In that sense, Haerts fit nicely alongside the work of such similarly inclined contemporaries as Canada's Young Galaxy, as well as their Brooklyn labelmates St. Lucia. Ultimately, it’s Haerts' combination of straightforward, rootsy melodicism and more experimental, ambient inclinations that helps them grab your ear and your heart.

Album Review!

Their first debut album album Haerts brings you an true alternative album. With strong soft vocals. This album takes you back in time to the 80s Haerts is bringing 80s back.

Wow. A fantastic album filled with instant pop classics.

This beat all expectations after my falling in love with Haert's Hemiplegia EP. This is a beautiful album from start to finish, filled with great hooks, sweet vocals, and rich, layered sounds. One of my favorite albums of 2014.

Best innovative emotional band!

Best band in ages to have an entire album as good as their hit single. They remind me of some of Chvrches stuff, but they don’t end the songs at 3 minutes which is great. So great for dancing! So full and has great layering of instruments and her voice is one to behold! It’s like some of the greatest dance songs from the 80s meets Texas, meets Haim meets Chvrches…who had some great songs, but the the album as a whole wasn’t as good as their single. Highly recommend you buy the whole album and listen to it with your eyes closed! Makes you feel drunk and so happy! Thank you Haerts!!
