It’s no secret that I am absolutely, positively, 100% head over heels for The Head and the Heart. Ever since their angelic harmonies on “Lost in my Mind” made their way to my ears, I have not been able to stop listening. Today, they put out their third video for “Down in the Valley” from their self-titled debut album. Director E. Ryan McMackin pieced together clips from their last tour and created a moving portrait of the diverse landscape that comprises America. The scenes are one-part fun, one-part emotional and one-part travel. It encapsulates what has endeared tens of thousands of fans at sold-out shows across the country. Their lyrics, sensibilities and performance remind us all of our roots and the strange feeling that takes over when we are stripped from them. It’s a tribute to the band’s meteoric rise that they can still produce art that stays true to what made us love them in the first place.
Catch them on tour this Spring.
