Go Suburban – “Heavens Harbinger”
Provo, Utah-based rock group Go Suburban impressed mightily this summer with their new album WWDK, which featured highlights like the self-titled cut and “Somewhere Somehow” that showed the project with Arcade Fire-like anthemic rock potential. Another highlight from the release, “Heavens Harbringer”, has a deep story attached to it, which is captured well in the just-released atmospheric video. Whirring guitars and steady vocals hold the pace, building into an exciting conclusion where the guitars and vocals combine for a chilling resonance, before concluding abruptly.
Of the track, the groups says:
This is a a song Brian wrote about an accident that took place at Utah’s Bear Lake a little over a year ago. It is also track on our debut album WWDK released last April.
Brian said this about the song in a Facebook post in Sept.
“Some of you may remember the tragedy at Bear Lake last June that took the lives of a father, his 2 daughters, and 1 of the daughter’s friends when a freak storm with devilish winds created 10 foot waves and capsized their boat. It was just moments after hearing about this tragedy that I sat down and wrote a song called “Heavens Harbinger”. It’s a fairly dark and haunting song but I think it came out that way because of the way I was feeling at the time I wrote it.”
