The Singles: “(She’s Got) A Heart Of Stone”
L.A.-based garage pop duo The Singles are getting ready to release their debut album Look How Fast A Heart Can Break on April 1st. Their first single from the album is “(She’s Got) A Heart Of Stone.” I’m a sucker for any song title that starts with a parenthetical, but the rest of the track happens to be great too. With dirty guitars and rockabilly slapback vocals, the verses have a playful edge to them before opening up into a melodic power-pop chorus. Vince and Nicky’s vocals blend together perfectly over the wash of noisy guitars and pounding drums, bringing out a tension between the bluesy rock influence and the pop-centered harmonies.
