The HEAVY HEAVY – ” Desert Raven “

Posted: March 22, 2023 in MUSIC

The Heavy Heavy have released an expanded edition of their debut ‘Life and Life Only’ EP, . The physical release, pressed on coke bottle clear vinyl,  is due on May 19th.

Now spanning 11 tracks, like runaway hits “Miles and Miles,” “Go Down River,” and rapturous opener “All My Dreams,” the newly extended set also includes The Heavy Heavy’s hypnotic, harmony-laden takes on Father John Misty’s “Real Love Baby,”Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Guinnevere” and a previously unheard rendition of Jonathan Wilson’s “Desert Raven,” plus a roaring live recording of “Man of The Hills” and an acoustic arrangement of “Go Down River.” 

“We’ve loved “Desert Raven” since the moment Jonathan Wilson released it in 2011. We wanted to bring it into our sonic world, adding big vocal harmonies over the choruses and expanding on the instrumentation. It evokes the feeling of a fever dream…road tripping the American desert. The guitar-monies are stunning, and something you don’t hear so much in modern music. We had a lot of fun recording this cover.”

“Desert Raven” is from the new Expanded Edition of The Heavy Heavy’s EP ‘Life and Life Only.’
