I love Heavy Heart – they were one of my favourite new bands of 2016. ‘The Way Home’ is a more reflective track for the band as front woman Anna explains:
2016 has been a very strange and troubling year in so many ways, and one that many people will be glad to see the back of. Being here almost at the end and looking back, I wanted to write something about this, but also about finding a small spark of hope in the dark. Fighting amongst ourselves is pointless when there are bigger wars ahead, so ‘The Way Home’ is kind of a broken, bleak battle song.
Sometimes our only solace is to lose ourselves in creativity when all else seems dark – this song is the perfect medicine.
