Our generation thrives on sharing photos dug up from the past on Instagram with the hashtag: #ThrowbackThursdays. Well, music is also a nostalgic form of the arts, and we find ourselves being reminiscent of memorable hour-long (sometimes longer) sets from past festivals.

Ladies, channeling your inner vixen is inevitable when listening to this set, listener's discretion is advised!
With full, pop melodies devouring the choruses, lyric compact verses, and simple acoustic strummed bridges, The Head and the Heart evolve into the a well-rounded, diverse group that listeners have never heard before.
Lead single “Shake,” filled with tambourines, an array of guitars, a poignant piano melody, and most appropriately, shakers, proves to be a fun first single to re-introduce the band. The subtle harmonies between the group tell the strong story of love filled with metaphors and powerful love declarations like “I can’t forget your face. Even if it was just a day, you won’t forget the one who’s making you shake.” The song lies heavily in a grassroots, rock-country song, which comes across truthful for the group.
