Howling Bells have shared their new video for single, ‘Your Love,’ via Birthday Records. The latest offering is the second single to be taken from the band’s eagerly anticipated fourth album, Heartstrings, which you’ll be able to get your hands on from the 2nd June.
Despite Heartstrings being Howling Bells’ fourth album, it’s the first they’ve recorded in their adopted hometown of London with Australia, Liverpool, Los Angeles and Las Vegas the previous venues. Recorded at London’s Assault and Battery Studios Howling Bells surrounded themselves with successful company with Catherine J. Marks (Foals’ Holy Fire, PJ Harvey’s White Chalk) and legendary producer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, The Killers, Depeche Mode) offering their assistance.
Taking a different approach to the making of their previous records, Howling Bells made the recording of Heartstrings an intense process, laying down a track a day for 11 days, “Having a deadline means you’re forced to make crucial artistic decisions in a very short time. You don’t have the luxury of over-thinking. I feel this process shaped the album. As a result, you become incredibly connected to the musical spirit of the band.” says frontwoman Juanita Stein. “We loved every second of it”
