KEXP Presents: The Head And The HeartKEXP

Given the speed with which the band rose in popularity, it's not surprising that The Head and the Heart would want to slow down for a minute. After all, the Seattle group was performing at open mics just a few years ago, yet now sells out large theaters nationwide. The group's recent second album, Let's Be Still, is more deliberately graceful than its self-titled and initially self-released predecessor, but it still deftly balances head and heart in songs like the title track.
