Now Playing: Haux – 'Heartbeat'

Monday, January 29, 2018

Haunting. Atmospheric. Soulful. Photographer-turned-musician, Woodsen Black, the face behind Haux, is an artist to watch this year — the proof is in ‘Heartbeat’, the second single from his sophomore EP, Something to Remember. This track is an inviting preview of the masterpiece to come crafted by the electronic folk-pop artist.  

‘Heartbeat’ possesses a poignant quality. Through a combination of sparse, icy synths and ghostly vocals, Haux evokes the deepest of feelings within the listener. The poetic lyrics of the track will transport you to another time and place. The lyrics beautifully capture the feeling of being completely alone with your thoughts, “We’re running away from the darkest moon / We’re praying our lungs will find us soon." The dream-like track further reveals that often where painful memories lie, tenderness does too.

If the captivating and cinematic composition of ‘Heartbeat’ is any indication of what to expect from Haux’s EP, 30th March is definitely a date we will be anxiously awaiting.
