Out on November 3rd via Faction Records is the new single from Dublin electro-pop collective (describing their band members only as ‘Many’), based around singer-songwriter Richard Egan and a core of three, Jape. The Hearts Desire is taken from the bands new album ‘The Chemical Sea’, which is out in January 2015 and is the follow up to their 2012 Choice Music Prize-winning ablum Ocean of Frequency.It has this innocence about it, little melodic ideas flit through, the percussion this gentle rattle. As it gets towards the chorus, heralded by the addition of this piano shrouded in echo, so it opens out and floats, thick with melody. As the track continues, so more lines are added, little snatches, sometimes no more than a few notes, added to the mix.
Excitement is mounting.
