Art Circus combines the cute nature of Au Revoir Simone with traits of electronic pop and even (if just slightly) hip hop (at least on this song). Yes, that sounds a little odd, but check out “My Heart Hurts” and I think you’ll understand. The song is slightly melodramatic and moody, backed by a dreamy drum box and indie pop synths, all fronted by Halle Jane with vocals pure and sweet.
The band’s new LP is called Apples and Oranges and you can find it now on Plastic 350 Records.
“My Heart Hurts” follows what you’ll get on Apples and Oranges: light and playful near-twee electro-influenced indie-pop. It’s bouncy, entirely lovable and super fun. Within the album are eleven tracks where Halle lends her sweet vocals to the songwriting expertise of member Robert Ellis Orrall, with assistance form Al Anderson, Canaan Smith and Ben Jones.
