Arts Fishing Club – “hello heartbreak”


A rousing rock appeal endures throughout “hello heartbreak,” a track from Arts Fishing Club and their new album, Rothko Sky. The project took form after Wisconsin-born songwriter Christopher Kessenich moved to Nashville, where an eventual search for bandmates began. After a couple years of touring, the act came to fruition with Matthew Siffert (bas), Peter Eddins (keyboards/saxophone), and Jimi Greene (lead guitar)).

Exemplary of the band’s powerful charisma, “hello heartbreak” captivates with its enthusiastic vocal ardency and exhilarating guitar work. A sweltering, debonair vocal presence engages into the “like nothing’s ever changed,” build-up, punctuated enjoyably by melodic guitar twangs. Vocals lament on being short on time and love being wasted, the latter captivating upon the catching bridge approaching the three-minute mark. “hello heartbreak” is a stellar, hooky rocker from Arts Fishing Club.
