Alternative Pop Duo HEIRSOUND, formed by Alexa San Román & Dane Petersen (formerly of Love, Robot) have been gearing up for the release of their colorful debut EP, titled Merge, set for 8/5/16. Merge EP consists of 6 songs, each song represented by a color that has an aura and a feeling, creating the color wheel. Up to the EP’s release, HEIRSOUND has released a slew of videos produced by San Román herself, each with the corresponding color as the theme. To date, HEIRSOUND has shared a video for “Do it Over” [yellow], “My Own.” [blue], “Hoods Up” [purple], and “Slow Motion” [orange] which recently dropped with a huge response. Today, the band is thrilled to be partnering with PopMatters to give their fans an exclusive first-listen of the EP in full. Here is what Alexa San Román had to say about the debut:
“The release of Merge is a very important moment for both Dane & I as it is our first real step forward with HEIRSOUND. We have worked hard to find ourselves both separately and together so this EP represents that for us. We are proud to have created something that we both believe in & that not only chronicles an emotional journey for us but also acted as a therapeutic aid as we wrote it. We like to think of this EP as the bridge between our old musical styles & the future of HEIRSOUND.” – Alexa San Roman
HEIRSOUND are an Alternative Pop Duo formed in New York in December ’14 around the talents of singer/songwriters Alexa San Román & Dane Petersen while the members were still in transition from a previous musical endeavor. Built around the dueling vocals & guitars of Petersen & San Román, the two set out to create an ethereal sound that they can call their own. Merging together from opposite sides of the country (Petersen from CA, San Román from NY), the duo start their journey as HEIRSOUND with a colorful six-song debut EP titled Merge.
First appearing on the public radar in October ’15 with the single “Do It Over“, the team’s new sound, & grassroots fan base became clear following a few months of visual artwork posts/teasers. HEIRSOUND is a duo who let you into their own world sonically as well as visually. Always working together closely, Dane & Alexa are set to release their debut EP on 8/5/2016 while continuing to showcase their live performance in as many places around the world as possible. Merge EP was recorded at VUDU Studio, produced and mixed by Mike Watts, engineered by Frank Mitaritonna, Tom Happel & Mike Watts, and mastered by Joe LaPorta.
