I’ve been a bit of a behind the scenes fan of the band Stitched Up Heart for a couple of years now based on my true enjoyment of their musical output that I first heard on their self-titled EP which was reviewed on the PiercingMetal website HERE. While that has been on the site for awhile and I truly need to add more of their works to the review database this single few tunes easily brings you into their world and with my seeing the band at long last in concert on Sunday, I wanted to share their recently released video “Finally Free” with the Metal Masses. Check it out below and then we can banter a little bit.
“STITCHED UP HEART have forged their path in sheer passion and earned their keep in physicality and volume. Both on the road and in the studio, frontwoman Mixi and the Los Angeles-based quintet face 2016 and their forthcoming Another Century debut with brazen confidence. “Finally Free” is the clarion call for the band’s day of reckoning. Recorded by producer Mitch Marlow and captured on video by director Ron Underwood (also known as the high-flying frontman for labelmates, 9ELECTRIC), “Finally Free” delivers on the promise hinted at on their self-released EP, Skeleton Key. Stitched Up Heart’s days of self-booked national van tours and Mixi being a Revolver “Hottest Chicks” mainstay was merely the beginning. Driven by a new level of sonic confidence and topped with the frontwoman’s soaring vocal verve, it’s the sound of a band unapologetically coming into its own”.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say first that I love this new track and cannot wait to hear the bands full-length work when it is ready to be unleashed upon the world. Sonically speaking Stitched Up Heart works well alongside bands like The Agonist and is a recommendation for those who might not yet have heard of them and are looking for another band with some similar aural assault. I enjoy this kind of video which is strictly a performance space kind of clip because it makes you feel present at one of their rehearsals and singer Mixi Demner is drop-dead gorgeous and should be a part of everyone’s WCW posts (that means “Woman crush Wednesday apparently and I only learned this from Instagram). Now that they are a part of the Century Media Records family with Another Century, I think big things are ahead for them and its about frigging time. What do you readers think of this clip? Is it a band you can see yourself getting behind? Let’s discuss in the comments.
