Swedish multi-instrumentalist David Alexander - aka Summer Heart has been creating a buzz in the music world since his first release Please Stay EP back in 2011. This was followed by a series of singles and full length About a Feeling in 2012. His sound - all lo-fi, dreamy, summer haze is both nostalgic and extremely current and promises for more attention to come.
Summer Heart has committed to releasing a track every month across 2018, with hashtag #12SongsOfSummer supporting the project. The latest of these was single 'Subside' released on August 10th via Perfect Texture Records. Take a listen here.
