While in Australia for a short tour supporting their latest album Heartstrings, London-based Australian band Howling Bells dropped by the Music Feeds Studio to deliver a taster of a few of the tracks from the album.
Original Sin was part of the set and provided the most immediately melodic moment. The verses are comparatively sparse for Howling Bells allowing Juanita Stein’s voice to take on a seductive character. Meanwhile the drums and guitars stomp alongside waiting for their chance to burst in the chorus.
The track was the third single to be released from the album and is startlingly reminiscent of the band’s original sound. Heartstrings in general sees the band move away from the polished, stadium-bound tracks featured on their second and third albums.
