Following a tour of North America in March of 2024, Australian folk quartet The Heart Collectors are returning to the United Kingdom in May for their first tour since 2018. This touring will be preceded by their latest 13 track album The Space Between and today they are sharing the first fruits of this release – the celestial single & video, Sirius B.
New single ‘Sirius B’ is the aptly titled secondary release of this celestial song, following Sirius from The Heart Collectors ‘Timeless Space’ EP earlier this year.
Together with the Official Youtube Video, this transcendent Folk-Pop ballad combines the hopeful discovery of love with nuanced and wistful mysteries. The setting of the film clip adds a contrasting depth to the release. “Traveling through the sandstorms of New Mexico to find ourselves in White Sands National Park was both chilling and awe inspiring” as lead singer, Kymrie explains… “Visually, we wanted to explore the otherworldly quality of this unique landscape. Driving past White Sands Missile Range and Test Facility, we became very aware of our proximity to the Trinity Site, a location marking the detonation of the first Nuclear Bomb.”
The Heart Collectors find the transformative quality of sound current in their expansive expression of love. Visual references to hermetic art and mysticism lend to the lyrical interweaving of the literal and metaphorical. All the while, binary star ‘Sirius B’ shines as the heroine of this Bowie-esque soundscape.
