Video News: London pop-rockers Heel release ‘Stranger’ music video

By on June 12, 2014


With an EP recorded and produced by SikTh vocalist-cum-producer Justin Hill slated for July release, Heel have newly unveiled video ‘Stranger’, directed by other SikTh vocalist Mikee Goodman.

Heel have spent last year tirelessly touring their self-titled debut release, cementing an international fan base in the process. And that’s not just social media metrics talking; despite still being an upcoming name, Heel – completed by guitarist Dan, bassist Yuta and drummer Tom – saw their 2013 touring schedule incorporate a successful headline tour of Japan.

Temporarily hanging out their touring britches in early 2014 to focus on creating a follow-up release, Heel found themselves once again working alongside SikTh vocalist-cum-producer Justin Hill to create Sophomore E.P, ’Stranger Just The Same’. “Justin always describes us as “Retro” cos we write all our stuff together with a guitar, a pen, and a pad, and then work it out as a group, before we ever involve the machines,” laughs vocalist Maggie. “We believe that reliance on technology slows you down creatively.  We want to be thinking about where we want to go with a song artistically, not get bogged down in all the production stuff that will inevitably come later on anyway.”
