"unexpected and refreshing" - triple j unearthed review





‘From The Heartland’ was formed in 2008 when a rag-tag group of like-minded Perth musicians and friends banded together, drawn by a shared love of eclectic music, tempered by a shared love of fine wine, good conversation, and adventurous spirit.

It is this foundation upon which the organic sound of the band grew, fueled as much by the experiences and imagery of travel as by the talent and willingness to experiment displayed by every band member, across a vast range of instruments and styles. The resulting fusion of new ideas with antique traditions gave birth to the band as it is today.

The music blends modern song writing form with stylized instrumentation influenced by the traditional folk sounds of Europe, from an accordion on the French Riviera to a trumpet on a Serbian mountainside. This is music designed to paint a scene or tell a fable, equally at home around a smoky campfire as it is in a smoky bar. The lyrics relate tales of love, adventure and an open road that leads the listener back to the ancient European heartland; where gypsies roam, poets lament, and where the only universal truth lies in a bottle and a song.

Equal parts rousing, soulful and evocative, the songs of the Heartland take the acoustic folk you know and turn it into something captivating and new, and, above all, damn good fun.

So top up your glass, don your dancing shoes, and you might just find that there’s a little bit of the Heartland spirit inside all of us...
