As per their previous single Tonight, a track that locked in support from Huw Stephens and BBC Introducing, the latest offering from Yorkshire four piece VICTORS owes as much to the washed out Californian vibe that came long before it, as it does to the band’s catchy indie pop sensibilities. In fact perhaps in this case even more so.
Coated with a sunny electro-sheen and sporting vocals that are softer and warmer around the edges, the verses on Two Hearts are glossier than its predecessor, and the barrage of hooks even poppier. That said, the band don’t pull any punches when it comes to unleashing the full weight of their combined musical armoury on the song’s big, singalong chorus which is surefire designed to get their live crowds bouncing.
“It originates from personal experience of past relationships,” explains lead singer Harry about the roots of the track which will be released 17 June, before adding that it “explores the physical as opposed to the emotional.”
Two Hearts serves as a taster for VICTORS’ upcoming debut EP which will be released later this year.
