H.E.A.T are back and the excitement is on!

The Swedish melodic rockers strike with a lyric video for Time On Our Side – the first track taken off their upcoming fifth studio album Into The Great Unknown, out Sep 22nd via EarMusic.

H.E.A.T are well known for their blazing, raw energy that emerges not only in their music but also their !must see! live shows. Time On Our Side is a strong anthem fuelled with an exceptional chorus and it surely makes one thirsty for the new record and a live tour announcement.

Interview / Ed Tullett

Brighton based solo artist Ed Tullett has been paving his way through the music universe for some time now. And with a serious gift. His acclaimed remix of Bon Iver’s Hinnom, TX, collaboration with Novo Amor as well as having his music featured on TV shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Bones and Catfish all led to the recent release of his debut Fiancé, which ought to be described as an epicly powerful masterpiece with beautifully haunting sound waves.

Check out MGMB’s convo with Ed about Fiancé and all things music.

Eva: Hi Ed, congrats on your debut record Fiancé. What’s it been like since its release?

Ed: It’s great to just have it out. The record has been finished for nearly a year and a half and it’s so relieving for it to finally be out, especially since all my other solo stuff is so old now. The press has been great and it’s exciting to be releasing new music at last.

Tell us about the album and its recording process.

It happened fairly quickly, after writing Malignant I finally found a sound that felt my own – I ran with it and within a few months the record was pretty much there. It’s great working alone as it allows you to pick up where you left off whenever you want with no outside pressure.

If you had just one song to play to a brand new listener, which one would you chose and why?

Maybe Ply from this record. It’s not as immediately abrasive as Malignant or Saint for example, a softer introduction, but it sums up the record well – quiet and loud, a ton of harmony, big synths…

Your music is full of intense, beautiful sounds not to mention the gripping vocals. What’s the main target for you when putting a song together?

I guess the best thing is that there isn’t really a target. That’s what I found with this record, and why I still love it even though it’s a lot older to me than to new listeners. I just wrote whatever I wanted and whatever sounded good, and then fit within that sound to make the record cohesive.

What inspired your latest video for Malignant? Amazing track by the way!

The song itself is about disease, and the seemingly random/unfair nature in which it affects certain people. The figure in the video is essentially a metaphor for disease. It’s pretty dark!

Who influenced your musical journey the most?

It’s hard to say, I’m not sure I could narrow it down to one person. I’ve been helped and inspired by a ton of people along the way. Individuals I really admire include Sufjan Stevens, Justin Vernon, Radiohead – people who have a lot of different projects and sounds, something I’m hoping to emulate.

What do you think does it take to make it in the music industry nowadays and how do you see yourself fitting in?

Maybe having no expectations, being ready for disappointment! My main focus is to have a career in music, and if that means behind the scenes as a writer/producer or as an artist then either is great.

Have you got any shows lined up your fans can excited about?

Unfortunately not right now – perhaps in the near future!
