In Heaven are a band that A&Rs in the music industry got very excited about. REALLY QUICKLY. Which is often a good sign to avoid. Irrational thinking and hysteria makes the real situation around a band very noisy. But here’s their first single. Balls out scuzzy rock ‘n’ roll. It’s a kick in the face. And I want more. They’re on tour this October, all over the UK, with Vant and The Big Moon.
Let me start with some honesty. The first time the track kicked in – I thought it was Future Islands. They are, however, a Belfast based 5 piece.

(I was sat by myself in a cold studio.) It’s nice to hear something sound so big. Wanky word alert incoming. Sonically, there’s loads going on. And yet they’ve still got so much to give, because they’re only just getting started…
