Indie Spoonful

INDUSTRY REVIEW: Heavy AmericA 'If You Care' - Overall Impression: Skillfully resurrecting the sounds and structures of Classic Rock through a contemporary Indie lens, Heavy AmericA presents their original track, If You Care. Lyrically focused on the all-too-familiar sensation of isolation, If You Care masterfully shifts between slow and psychedelic soundscapes and the bold, bright grit of straight-up Rock - crafting an incredibly engaging audio experience through classic sounds and modern sensibilities! Strongest Point(s): Incredible songwriting! Lyrically, the song is universally relatable - tackling a common but understated theme with a fully accessible and very pleasant lead vocal quality. Laid back, but full of fire! The instrumentals are stellar - excellent tone selection and a really killer cohesion to the sound. Very reminiscent of bands like Deep Purple - in the best sense. Seriously masterful transitions from the ethereal verses into the more driven choruses of the song. Really great guitar solo work in terms of tone, execution, and placement. Really great work! Target Audience Appeal: Modern listeners with a taste for Classic sounds will be blown away by the music that Heavy AmericA is producing - and the lyrical content of If You Care is more relevant in the age of social distancing than ever before. Massive musicianship, an open vocal approach, and an Indie Rock sound that speaks for itself stand to convert passive listeners from a wide range of backgrounds into active fans of Heavy AmericA - with If You Care positioned to be the perfect introduction!

With its almost ballad-like point of sonic embarkation, it is easy to think that you may have somehow cued up the wrong song…or what ever the digital equivalent might be. Experience has taught us that Heavy AmericA are masters of low-slung, howling, growling, riffed up and rocked out music, so where is the grunt, the grind …the groove? Give it a minute and you find out. Ahh…there it is. What’s neat about If You Care is that this time out the Boston trio have blended their trademark alt-rock onslaught with some supple sonic moves, subtle lows to match their soaring highs. And it is such deft use of sonic punctuation which propels the more driven moments of the music to have an even more powerful effect. It’s a bit like being able to jump further because you have taken a longer run up…or something. And the result is wonderfully effective. A splicing of the familiarity of classic rock riffs, with alt-rock swagger and a slight meander into prog-rock song structure which sets the track apart from the usual tried and tested rock forms. And lyrically it has a depth not usually associated with the run of the mill, foot on the monitor rawk and rooool. Here the band take a look at the set backs and challenges that we all face in life and remind us that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, there is always a hand being offered to help us get back on track. It is a sentiment that is perhaps more important than it has ever been. The world is a dark and divided place but all you have to do is call for help and lean on each other for support and you will get through. Trust them, they’ve got your back.” - Dave Franklin

Dancing About Architecture

July 2020 – Heavy America is a band with a focus on creating powerful alternative rock music that feels a lot more open and one-of-a-kind. As opposed to following only one single direction, the group likes to think more broadly, expanding its creative horizon and going for a more direct and upfront feel. Recently, the band put out a new single titled “If You Care.” The track begins with a slower psychedelic twist, and it quickly delves into a fired-up rock and roll number, which reminds us of acts like The Who or The Kinks in its most upbeat moments. I love the quiet-loud dichotomy, which begins so much variety to this excellent music release. This is definitely going to be your cup of tea, especially if you enjoy the sound of bands such as Pink Floyd, The Byrd, as well as Soundgarden, only to mention but a few. Find out more about Heavy America, and check out “If You Care,” which is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music, and more of the web’s best music streaming platforms.”

Heavy AmericA’s New Psychedelic Rocker 'If You Care' - Heavy AmericA is a Boston, MA based rock band that bends disparate Rock & Roll styles into their own unique sound. Regular readers of The Static Dive are familiar with the band. Last September we featured their single, “Motor Honey (Peace)”. That was a high octane, riff-heavy rocker with elements of Classic, Metal and Punk Rock. With screaming lead guitar, a hard hitting backbeat and big rumbling bass guitar, the three-piece ensemble takes full advantage of the freedom made possible by their power-trio status. On their new single “If You Care,” Heavy AmericA once again cherry picks styles from the last five decades of Rock. Through much of the song the band leans heavily into the psychedelic sounds of early Classic Rock. The track opens with some nice melodic clean guitar. Michael T. Seguin (vocals & guitar) sings stream-of-consciousness lyrics about apathy and love in a trippy style, perfect for the genre. The sound brings to mind early Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd. For the chorus the band kicks into a rocking double-time Alt-Rock Punk rhythm. It is a great transition, and a great example of this band’s broad range of abilities in multiple Rock sub genres. The song returns to a hippy realm during the second chorus until the band rocks out again at the 2:00 mark. They keep the pace up for the remainder of the song. I really dig the guitar solo. It gave the song a bit of a Golden Earring vibe. The “If You Care” video has sexy, body-painting free-love fun with the trippy vibe. You can hear Heavy AmericA on the Deep Indie Dive playlist. Follow the links below to connect with this excellent, hard-rocking Boston band. Stay in the loop on all of their current and future projects.” - Bob Smith
