Comprised of Jordan Prather and Belinda Esquer, Head Over Heart embrace indie pop rock like few other acts we’ve heard today.
“For us, it means we write catchy music that is listenable,” Prather admits. “We’re not trying to make something weird or different for the sake of being weird or different … we don’t think ‘pop’ is a dirty word.”
Putting those sentiments into action, last week Head Over Heart unveiled the B-side for their upcoming 7” single, and today (June 3), Diffuser is thrilled to offer “Fall Back in Love” as an exclusive download
Jordan Prather and Belinda Peters make up the Tucson-based Head Over Heart — a duo that’s not afraid to be labeled “pop.” And though their sound is pure and excessively listenable, the pop elements are buried in soft sheets of electro production that grow and wane over borderline British indie-rock vocals.
Don’t be fooled by the seamless production, though; their new single “I Don’t Mind” is a sobering sentiment about self indulgence as a means of coping. Prather had this to say about the track:
“I Don’t Mind” is about someone who is conflicted in life, but isn’t aware of it. This person blames the world around them and their past experiences for their current problems. This person’s partner takes drugs to try and fix these issues, and makes romantic decisions that contradict their happiness. Some of the lyrics have dual meaning regarding the singer’s perspective on the failing relationship and their own problems with drugs.
