The Macarons Project – “Heartbreaker”


“Heartbreaker” is an affecting new single from The Macarons Project, asking “who’d be the heartbreaker?” whilst exploring the complexities of relationships, particularly set against a movie-like narrative. The Canada-based Indonesian duo excel with their songwriting here, and continue an impressive ascent, following their cover of “Fly Me to the Moon” being featured in a CNN documentary, and the rapper Dave sampling their track.

“Sunshine and roses, can we keep it that way?” the opening vocals ask, yearning for hope amidst gray skies as reflective guitar twangs surround the dreamy vocal vulnerability. “Where is the happy ending, like movies we’ve seen?” furthers the heartache. The “who’d be the heartbreaker?” questioning sends chills into the swooning, wordless vocal punctuation, following the artful movie comparisons amidst “daisies and rainbows,” idyllic visions. “Heartbreaker” is a resonating track from The Macarons Project, immersing with its sincerity and heart-on-sleeve introspection.

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.
