The Past Beats Inside Me Like a Second Heartbeat
Urthboy explains “This project was to be released in 5 EPs, with each covering a decade between 1950 and 2000. The working title was Decades and the vision was to give life to the relationship between the past and present. Just like a million writers before me, I dreamt up a beast so daunting, that I spent three years trying to tame it. Everything changed when I wrote my family into the story.
‘Long Loud Hours’ set the tone; voted in at #33 in the Hottest 100; while new single ‘Second Heartbeat’ switches gears to summer, setting up Urthboy’s most intriguing record to date. The album is executive produced by Pip Norman & Hermitude, with additional production by Nic Martin, Styalz Fuego and Rahj Jordan.
