My HeavyHeart is a German based electronic folk project who has had their single, “Weary”, tweaked by longtime German electronic music producer, Sikora. There are so many spaces that “Weary” fits into that it is crazy. You’ll feel just as comfortable playing this song as an indie folk spot as you would at a party night.
The usage of familiar drum breaks gives it an instant party appeal that will make you smile, while the instrumentation deliver a distinct electro-pop touch, leaving the vocals to bring all the melancholy emotion to the yard. The range is in the production capabilities though, which I think is the greatest component to this project.
The magic evident on “Weary”, usually happens when musicians and producers incorporate a mélange of influences along with a spark of creativity. Clearly this is what My HeavyHeart and Producer Sikora have achieved here; coming up with a fresh sounding track.
It’s hard not to love the simple synths, basslines and various effects on this effort. There is also an ethereal quality to the vocal that expresses the contrasting emotions of the song quite effectively, while the drum beat obviously adds propulsion to the track.
Fresh, energetic, melodic, up-beat, catchy, with lovely lyrics and with even lovelier vocals, “Weary”, would make a perfect backdrop for a summer night drive from Phoenix to Vegas in a top-down convertible. And it wouldn’t be out of place on the drive back either, no matter what your state of mind!
“Weary” by My HeavyHeart doesn’t take a second listen to shine; thanks to Sikora’s tasteful mix which is never heavy-handed, the song hits you right away and the whole thing is a pretty hypnotic experience.
All in all, this is a serious and exciting effort by musicians and a producer who are clearly passionate about their craft.
