Heartbeater

BandRock

a gritty style of pensive rock ’n’ roll that meshes the stout rhythmic backbone of Pixies and other gnarly early grunge and college-rock acts with a wet, Southern-tinged wall of surfy guitars.

Biography

Heartbeater is a rock band from Nashville, Tennessee.

In Fall 2009, Heartbeater released their self-titled debut EP.

The four songs comprising the EP possess a nostalgic quality which combines the energy of indie greats like Pixies, Dinosaur Jr and the Wipers with walls of surfy, reverb drenched guitars to create a sound the Nashville Scene calls “unique and ballsy as all get-out."

The band consists of Greg Mabry (guitar/vocals), Corey Taylor (guitar), Jon Shoemaker (bass) and Jeff Ehlinger (drums).

Currently, Heartbeater is performing in and around the Nashville area on a regular basis and plans to tour in 2010.

Lyrics

She's A Pistol

Written By: Heartbeater

She's a pistol and she's getting loaded
Her trigger finger is pointing at me
I don't make no sudden moves
I stop dead in my tracks

Come into my kitchen said the spiders to the fly

She's a time bomb and she just exploded
Her short fuse was dying to get lit
I don't make no sudden moves
I stop dead in my tracks

Come into my kitchen said the spiders to the fly

Blood Red Moon

Written By: Heartbeater

We were lost out on the plains, when we found the time we lost
The red sun was setting across a darkened land, where the dust blows through my dreams and the sand slips through my hands

I never want to be alone
underneath the shadows of a blood red moon
give me your hand, we can make it through
make it through the shadows of a blood red moon

Did I dream that i was awake, or am I waking from a dream?
You turn to me and ask if I recognize this place
The wind whispers secrets from the lips of ancient days

I never want to be alone
underneath the shadows of a blood red moon
give me your hand, we can make it through
make it through the shadows of a blood red moon

Lead You Astray

Written By: Heartbeater

I will lead you astray
When you're tired of straight lines
Quietly slip away
Now that we have the time

Your lips do not lie
Now I wanna know more
We leave some things behind
We can always make more

I will lead you astray

See You Around

Written By: Heartbeater

You better finish what you started
Or it will leave you with a broken heart

I've seen you around
You've been standing on the other side of town
I've been seeing you around

I've seen you around

Can you feel, feel my heartbeat
Like an x-ray, went straight through me

I've seen you around
You've been standing on the other side of town
I've been seeing you around

I've been seeing you around
