Hyde & Beast - Open Your Heart


Wednesday 1st October 2014

It's hard to resist the charm of Hyde & Beast - AKA Dave Hyde (The Futureheads) and Neil Bassett (The Golden Virgins). We were big fans of their first album, their relaxed approach to sourcing a brass section, and their overall ability to channel the sound of another era into the present without ever sounding old.

Their second album 'Keep Moving' (released in August 2014) saw them receive the high praise they deserve from 6Music, NME, Q and even The Sun. The latest single from the album to be queued up for release (on 27th October) is a perfectly told tale of heartbreak titled 'Open Your Heart', bouncing somewhere between sorrow of Spaceball Ricochet and the cosiness Our House. Watch the video below:
