Debut album ‘The Island’ out November 2nd!
In the deep, dark waters of the Baltic Sea there is an island. A very peculiar island.
At first glance it might seem beautiful and peaceful, idyllic even, but the island’s seductive powers are not all they seem.
The Heard’s debut album ‘The Island’ revolves around the characters and places on this mysterious island. “The Island” is a concept album where the listener becomes acquainted with an island that is located somewhere between dream and reality, a place with room for both the ordinary and the supernatural. An island filled with both love and sorrow, where vitality and death live side by side. Although their roots are firmly embedded in hard rock, The Heard let their music grow wild, and beyond genres. The result is a dynamic album that is not bound by either the heavy and hard, nor the soft and sheer.
”The Island” is a dream project! Me, Ida and Nicki have been playing music together since our teenage years. Our thoughts about exploring the song-writing has been growing for a while. It was incredible to meet Skinny and Pepper who immediately understood our vision. The Heard is very different musically compared to our previous work, and it’s been very exciting to write a concept album. It’s also been a pleasant escape from reality while making this album. We love our intriguing, supernatural island-world and hope our listeners will enjoy it as much as we do”
