"Alternative Rock from heavy on the heart."

Emerging band heavy on the heart.‘s debut single “Mr. Know It All” is a powerful and passionate track that showcases the band’s raw and energetic sound. The Long Island-based alternative rock outfit has been making waves with their charged and hook-filled pop writing, and “Mr. Know It All” is no exception.

The track is written from a personal experience of lead vocalist Nikki Brady, who shares her story of a toxic relationship with a man who was also dating multiple other women named Nicole. The song captures the frustration and anger she felt in that situation, as Nikki’s soaring vocals bring a sense of attitude and passion to the lyrics.

The band’s sound is characterised by pounding, blistering drums and crunching guitars, creating a driving and energising energy that propels the song forward. The production by Gary Cioni at Sound Acres Recording Studio is perfect, capturing the raw power of the band’s live sound while still maintaining a polished and professional finish. - Plastic Mag

"Heavy on the Heart's 'Mr. Know It All' Revives the Post-Punk Era with Bold Attitude"

Smashing drums? You got it. Punchy riffs? Got that too. That classic 00s rock sound that took the world by storm simply faded away… I personally don’t think that anyone was done with it. There was still so much to discover. Thankfully there are trendsetters taking steps in the right direction like heavy on the heart. Their latest single, ‘Mr. Know It All,’ is a smashing example of why 00s rock, and post-punk for that matter, should never have faded away in the first place. It’s full of flavour and has an attitude that will keep you coming back for more. The verses dip low and keep you in the thick of it while the chorus, well — it explodes with all the force of that unforgettable 90s angst.

When ‘Mr. Know It All’ began I had one second to decide whether I love it or I love it. Everything is where it should be, the risks are in the melody, in the power. There is a personality here, not just loud guitars, and heavy on the heart aren’t afraid to show you their tender side. All in all, a perfect track. - TJPL News

"heavy on the heart – Mr Know It All"

heavy on the heart is a four-piece alternative rock band formed in 2021 from the US and Mr Know It All is their new single, released on 20/04/2023.

A superb blend of alternative rock, emo pop rock, pop and just about everything else, this is a high energy, upbeat track that is certain to get you bouncing around the living room.

The guitars are heavy and full of riffs, the emo punk influence really showing through here.

Slight distortion at various points in the track gives her a hint of grunge in her voice but she maintains the punk rock / pop style superbly.

This is a great track, one that will definitely get stuck in your head as the chorus is extremely catchy and for a relatively new band, these guys have a great sound.

Awesome stuff guys and I look forward to hearing much more from you in the very near future. - The Metal Asylum

"“Mr. Know It All” by heavy on the heart."

“Mr. Know It All” by heavy on the heart. checks all of the genre-defining boxes of a good pop-punk track. The vocals are powerful. The melodies are infectious. The lyrics are clever and memorable. Plus, this group has an incredibly distinctive sound thanks to the idiosyncratic, bright tone of the singer. If you’re not humming this under your breath for weeks, you did something wrong.

A covered set of electric guitar chords plays out in one ear, implying the coming explosion of texture. When it comes, both ears erupt in drums, bass, and even more electric guitar. Having an intro with a small build always intimates something dynamically exciting for the rest of the song. “Hey, get a load of this / I said your knight in shining armor is just nothing but a little b*tch,” this lyrically arresting first line tells us everything we need to know about the message. We’re getting a “Misery Business” or “Gives You Hell”-style piece of delectable character assassination. There’s nothing more cathartic to a mid-2000s rock fan.

After we chug through more distorted power chords, we arrive at the chorus. Harmonies envelop the lead singer’s powerful, high-pitched belts and add to the climactic, ambiance of the hook. Guitars strum through vibrant counter-melodies as the bass and drums uphold the structure. Though short, this moment satisfies the previous anticipation perfectly.

Stay tuned for a breakdown, a bridge, and the obligatory, gritty guitar solo. Everything about this piece screams brilliant rock songwriting and arrangement, so be sure to follow heavy on the heart! - Rising Artists
