Spectrum by Heals | Music Review & Song Recommendation by Indie Accent by Indie Accent

SPECTRUM
by HEALS


"I think this album is a contender for Album of the Year."


HEALS DEBUT ALBUM
RELEASED ON 2017

It's been 3 years since Bandung-based alternative rock/shoegaze band, Heals (@healsmusic) uploaded "Void" on their soundcloud page, and up until now the song has been played 37,600 times and has made people so curious about their next releases, and perhaps was the gateway to their success as they were invited to play at the Esplanade Theater, Singapore on March 25 2017, which makes me proud as an Indonesian. 3 weeks later, they have finally released their long-awaited debut album entitled "Spectrum." As i expected, the album is SO DAMN GOOD, it contains 10 tracks including "Void" and "Wave" (which we have reviewed before), and i think this album is a contender for "Album of the Year". Just like the title, this album has many "colors ", you can hear it in "Lunar", as it has a repetitive bassline which makes the song powerful, or in "Dazed" where you can hear touchy guitar riffs, even though the song is short, it's still memorable for me. In this album, Heals still relies on hazy vocals and distorted guitars. By the way, the song in the video is entitled "False Alarm". It's about overthinking and how to handle it. I recommend you watch the music video, as it is very entertaining. Kejimung!
