After hitting the airwaves hard with their tracks, “Religion” and “You Never Knew Me”, Glasgow-based Tongues. is back with “Heartbeat”, an electro rock-pop hit that vocalizes the anarchical nature of love. Using a combination of lyrical storytelling and multi-faceted electronic production (think vocoders, synths, subs, and more), Tongues. creates a heart racing anthem that highlights the anticipation and excitement that comes with letting love in. From dream-like versus to energetic, head-banging choruses, the song dynamically illustrates the ebbs and flows of building a relationship — each movement forward in the song reveals the happiness that arises from personal discovery and human connection, as well as the internal anxiety and complexity that follow.
In Tim Kwants own words, “‘Heartbeat’ is about the pursuit of connection and the longing to be known.” Like the constant beat of our hearts, our desire to create and sustain relationships is far more than a want — it’s a basic necessity. And by professing this simple, yet inherent need, “Heartbeat” transforms the fear of opening up into a daring, energetic and hopeful exploration.
