Interview Magazine exclusively shares HAERTS’ “All The Days” (Lissvik Remix) HERE, a day after the New York band released their four track Hemiplegia EP via Columbia Records (10/8). Last week, HAERTS partnered with Spotify to premiere the EP a week early on NYLON Magazine HERE. The band just finished up their tour with Washed Out, and will play the Neon Gold Records Showcase and a KEXP Live Session in New York at the CMJ Festival.

About the EP artwork, the band says: “The cover art is based on two images that have been meaningful to us and capture the title, sound and feel of “Hemiplegia”.  Gerhard Richter’s Cloud is the first image we used as band and has always remained significant. In our search for an image for “Hemiplegia,” we drew from another of Richter’s most haunting works from the 70s, titled I.G.. His treatment of the body, impossibly and eternally suspended in a moment, emotes the sense of paralysis found in the track “Hemiplegia.” This is why we chose to interpret I.G. with a photograph of Nini set against the cloud”.

HAERTS is a band based in New York hailing from Germany, England, and the United States. The group consists of Nini Fabi, Ben Gebert, Garrett Ienner, Derek McWilliams, and Jonathan Schmidt. The EP was produced in collaboration with Jean-Philip Grobler (aka St. Lucia). Late last year, the band revealed their first song “Wings” . In April, they collaborated with Emily Kai Bock for the gorgeous official “Wings” video.

The band has shared their upcoming album live on tours with Shout Out Louds, Atlas Genius, Fitz And The Tantrums and Washed Out. HAERTS’ debut album is due in 2014.

Recent praise for HAERTS:

“‘All The Days,’ produced by St. Lucia, roars and surges and twinkles, with lead singer Nini Fabi’s haunting vocal floating in and out under waves of ’80s instrumentation. You just have to hear it.” Idolator

“[‘All The Days’ is] another soaring, thoroughly rousing anthem from HAERTS. As good as their other song [‘Wings’], which officially makes them 2 for 2.” Gorilla Vs. Bear

“[‘All The Days’ is] ripe for a top-down cruise to, well, anywhere. Your summer playlist just got a headliner.”  Elle  

“‘Wings’ is about as flawless as pop tunes come.” KEXP
