Analog Heart Deliver Bright, Kinetic Energy In Their Latest Video, “13 Years”
When energy and raw talent collide, you find yourself listening to the memorable, ear-catching tunes of a band like Boston-based Analog Heart. Liz Bills’ vocals soar over her bandmates’ powerhouse sound, a hearty blend of indie rock with a touch of pop, and together they create music that is distinctly all their own. Their talents most recently combined to release their latest video for “13 Years,” and there’s plenty more on the horizon for this promising group.
Analog Heart is comprised of Jesse Cohen on lead guitar, Liz Bills on rhythm guitar, piano and lead vocals and Austin Ferrante on drums. They work with revolving bass players at the moment, but they recorded Analog Heart with Scott Riebling, the bass player from Letters to Cleo. The three core members of the group coalesce to contribute their talents to the soul of the band and share the authentic, powerful music that comes forth from their collaborations with their fans.
The trio names a number of musical influences that have inspired their music, including Etta James, Paramore, Kings of Leon, Silversun Pickups, The Killers, Florence and the Machine, and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, among others. They find themselves most often compared to Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Paramore and The Killers, while Liz’s distinct, impassioned voice is often compared to Janis Joplin.
It is that voice, emblazoned with fresh talent, that brought a great musical accomplishment to the group. Liz made it onto the TV show American Idol in 2013, where she made it to the final 30 girls and was on TV during Hollywood week. Another proud moment was the collective effort behind their self-titled recording debut, which they released in 2012.
In addition to their album recordings, Analog Heart have also focused on creating eye-catching videos to accompany their singles. Their most recent video is for their single, “13 Years,” and it features the group providing a peaceful outdoor setting with a catchy soundtrack complete with a fiery chorus—and later a fiery piano for the outgoing lines.
Analog Heart will contribute their track “Elephant Song” to WiFi PR Group’s compilation Indie Anthems Vol. 5, a collection of songs from independent talent across the globe. The digital mixtape will be handed out as 3,500 download cards at Coachella in 2014, and 1,500 more will be available via download codes on the Indie Anthems Bandcamp page.
With their eyes set on the future, Analog Heart plan to release their second EP sometime in the future and to embark on their second tour in April 2014.
