Painted Friends – “My Heart, Your Love”


A track out today from Detroit-based band Painted Friends, “My Heart, Your Love” mixes serenely introspective vocals with an array of warming guitar tones. The track precedes an upcoming full-length, out later this year, and is described by the project as “a love song between me and the rest of the world,” — expressing an overall gratitude for existence, even amidst doom and gloom. “Have you heard the news? Planet Earth is doomed,” the vocals question to start. “But I don’t really wanna find out,” they continue, choosing to embrace a more affectionate embrace.

The folk-friendly sparse following the mid-point expands comfortingly into twangy guitar fixtures at the three-minute turn, as the vocals take a momentary break and re-emerge into the “for yours is my heart,” adoration. A melodic success with rock and folk aesthetical enjoyment, “My Heart, Your Love” marks another success from Painted Friends, who also caught our ears last month with the track “Cain Complex.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
