Boston’s Heavy AmericA are back with a new dose of genre-bending guitar-based Rock & Roll. We first heard from the group back in 2019 upon the release of their single “Motor Honey (Peace).” They followed last year with the psychedelic vibes of “If You Care.” Those songs introduced us to a Rock & Roll power trio with the ability to slide between Classic and Alternative Rock genres to create a great modern groove that sounds simultaneously fresh and familiar.
“Crushed” is the latest single from Heavy AmericA, released worldwide to all major streaming services on July 9, 2021. The band continues their exploration of musical genres on the new track. This time they’ve left the power chords and shredding solos behind in favor of a classic, rhythmic Alternative Rock groove in the vein of legends like Talking Heads and Television.
Over a cool, laid-back riff guitarist and vocalist Michael T. Seguin sings a cryptic tale of romantic insecurity and jealousy. Meanwhile, bassist Budd Lapham and drummer Dan Fried hold down an airtight groove. The song has a great, subdued feel. Little flourishes like the subtle background vocals in the verse and Seguin’s melodic, chordal soloing add to the song’s noir vibe.
Check out the very cool and very trippy “Crushed” video below. You can also hear the track on the Deep Indie Dive playlist. Follow the links below the video to connect with the group. At their heart, Heavy AmericA is a live band. As the world slowly gets back to normal, expect to see them on stages across the Northeast.
