Introducing: Heir New single ‘After Forever'(Stream)

Heir are a DIY-pop band from Leeds. Organic songwriting, infectious rhythmical hooks and powerful vocal harmonies have propelled the five-piece to striking independent success. After hitting viral figures on Spotify with their debut single, ‘I’ll Pick You Up’, they have since performed at Reading and Leeds Festival, worked with producer Ken Scott (The Beatles, David Bowie) and launched their own collaborative arts night, Blueprint. In celebration of the release of new music the band are heading out on tour across the UK and Europe, which will begin with a sold-out show in Leeds.

‘After Forever’ may well be their grooviest yet. It’s the latest in a string of classy pop tracks, delicately crafted to depict the confusion, love, sadness and promise that accompanies life as an early twenty-year-old. The band have a reputation for feel-good, ’80s throwback energy but they also cite honest and thoughtful songwriting as one of their primary pillars of inspiration. “As well as gravitating towards writing music that makes you want to move we also love the process of getting right inside the story-world of the lyrics. I think with this latest stuff we captured a rhythm of writing that channelled a little bit more of that simple songwriter sound that we grew up listening to.
