Not long ago these rising stars of indie folk-rock were busking on Seattle street corners, strumming their acoustic guitars, stomping their feet, and singing in harmony to attract the attention of passersby. The Head and the Heart's unbridled energy informed their original material, which was honed in local clubs and captured on their 2011 debut album for the Sub Pop label.

Critical acclaim for their new album Let’s Be Still points to an enduring career ahead. “From the lush chamber-pop of ‘Homecoming Heroes’ to the groovy ‘Summertime’ and the roots-rocking ‘Shake,’ the album is the work of a more well-rounded ensemble,” says Rolling Stone. And Paste asserts, “They seem built to withstand pretty much any shift in the whims of the fickle pop culture landscape, and that’s almost certainly not an accident.”

“The group’s predilection for heartfelt, Avett Brothers-meets-Fleet Foxes roots rock is apparent right out of the gate,” says All Music Guide.
