Heaven For Real Share Lyric Video For Energy Bar

Heaven For Real

The Halifax Nova Scotia-born now Toronto-based project of twin brothers, Mark and J. Scott Grundy, Heaven For Real is today sharing their new album-titled single, “Energy Bar” which comes as the latest to be lifted from the new record – out September 16 on Mint Records (Tough Age, Wares) – which has found tips at Brooklyn Vegan, Toronto Star, Exclaim, Under the Radar, CBC Radio 3 and more so far. The new music comes on the heels of recent Canadian shows with the Fat Possum-signed Chicago group, Dehd, prior to which the band performed in Japan and North America opening for the likes of Japanese Breakfast, Nap Eyes, No Joy, Luna Li, Mac DeMarco, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and more.

“Energy Bar” is another blistering example of the band’s jangle-inflected dream-pop that zig-zags between flurrying, dual-pronged guitar lines laid about by the siblings and energetic percussion. Speaking about the new single, Mark Grundy explains: “‘Can You Believe It?’ is one of the great intangible/rhetorical questions – the asker could be talking about a world-ending climate disaster or a BOGO sale – it is the title track as we felt like it encapsulated a lot of the asking and the feelings associated with this record.”

Recorded with Jonas Bonetta (Evening Hymns) at Port William Sound and mixed by Montreal’s René Wilson (Faith Healer)Energy Bar is a document of the band ten years in, signposting something that’s simultaneously dreamlike and alive. “The record is an analysis and an ode to the broader feelings of ‘potentiality’ – what could be, what things will mean, where things are going; the sense of wondering, questioning, attempts at growth and self-analysis and acceptance,” says Mark.

Heaven For Real is formed around the nucleus of the Grundy twins. Since 2012, the back-and-forth between Mark’s evocative lyric-driven songwriting and Scott’s musically expressive instincts has breathed a precious life into Heaven For Real. Completed by drummer Natan Doucet and synth player Cher Hann, the band soon became one of Halifax’s most exciting musical prospects, a position they solidified with 2016’s debut album Kill Your Memory and their recent EP, the fabulously titled Sweet Rose Green Winter Desk Top Tell This Side Autumn Of The Fighter Hot In A Cool Way.
