Songs that Inspired The Head and the Heart ‘Signs of Light’

The Head and the Heart have been making the kind of music that makes you swoon for what seems like ages. They perfectly meld indie, pop and Americana to create something that is sweet perfection. We asked them to make us a playlist of songs that helped inspire their newest record and they came back with an extremely diverse list that shows just how creative they can be. Check out the playlist below and be sure to grab Signs of Light now.


These songs were huge inspirations and touch points for me during the writing and recording of Signs of Light.We were experimenting with new textures and tones, hoping we could find a breakthrough into a new sonic realm. 

The record wouldn’t be the same without these artists, who all had there own drive to grow and move beyond their previous work.  — Tyler Williams
