Albums Of The Week: The Head and the Heart | Every Shade Of Blue

The Seattle indie-folkies wear their you-know-what on their sleeves for this fifth LP.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Every Shade Of Blue conveys a spectrum of emotions and how we live with them,” The Head And The Heart say of their fifth studio album. “The closer we get, the more shades we see. The more shades we see, the more responsibility we hold. We all want to feel loved and protected. The question is will we be supported and seen by the ones we love In Every Shade Of Blue.”

Initially self-released in 2011, The Head and The Heart’s self-titled breakout debut produced instant classics including Rivers and Roads, Down In The Valley and Lost In My Mind and is now certified Gold. 2013’s Let’s Be Still and 2016’s Signs of Light settled into the Top 10, with the latter topping rock album charts, securing the band’s first No. 1 at alternative position with All We Ever Knew. The band’s fourth full-length Living Mirage was released to critical praise in 2019. Missed Connection secured the No. 1 position on the alternative chart, while the album’s breakout track Honeybee became a fan favorite with 153 million streams and more than a million weekly streams.

They have appeared in Cameron Crowe’s Roadies and their music has been featured in countless other commercials, films and TV, including Silver Linings Playbook. The band have established their status as a touring powerhouse, having landed prime time mainstage slots at Coachella, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. They have also performed 15 times on national television, with appearances on Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Austin City Limits and more.”
