Sounds Like Hallelujah

Last night I saw Seattle band The Head and the Heart at the Opera House in Toronto, and I have to say, it was one of the most beautifully flawless concerts I've ever seen. Not only were the two opening bands, Black Girls and Drew Grow and the Pastor's Wives, perfectly fabulous warm-ups for the rising alt-country collective, but when the headliners took the stage, every single on-stage jam was modestly effortless and astounding. Performing a rich set list of cozy folk songs from their debut album, as well as a few new heartwarming numbers, the  five-piece Americana crew cast a spell over Toronto with their milky harmonies, array of pleasant instruments, jangly anthems and building ballads. Singing a tune of rambling, traveling, bonding and missing home - their breathtaking presence was one I will never forget.

I cannot wait to hear what their next album holds, and I will without a doubt be attending any feasible stop on future tours. In all seriousness, if you've yet to hear this band - change that immediately.
