Editors’ Notes After breaking out with their debut self-titled album, the Seattle-based folk outfit The Head & The Heart return with a matured and polished sophomore effort, Let's Be Still. While the album largely sticks to the winning formula that put The Head & The Heart on the map—musically refined country-touched pub rock with lovely, arching melodies—Let's Be Still is more subtly constructed, artfully written, and intimate than its predecessor. Balancing airy, atmospheric tracks like "Springtime" with the falsetto-adorned folk rock of “Another Story" and “Homecoming Heroes," the album is filled with heartfelt musicianship and graceful lyricism. The album's closer, a six-and-a-half-minute behemoth called "Gone," features all the band's best qualities at once, in a resonate blend of folk, indie rock, and soaring, string-backed climaxes.
