The WLFC pick this week is Heart Beat Here by Dashboard Confessional. Dashboard Confessional is an alternative indie rock group. Heart Beat Here comes off their seventh album Crooked Shadows. This is their first album release after more than eight years.
Heat Beat Here is a blend of several different music styles that Dashboard Confessional has used over the years. The song has sounds of pop, bluegrass, alternative and emo music. Of all the songs on the album, it is most similar to their earlier releases. The songs lyrics paint a picture and tell a story that leaves listeners wanting more.
Dashboard Confessional is similar to groups such as Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World and Death Cab for Cutie. If you enjoy listening to music from the early 2000s Dashboard Confessional’s new album is one you should give a listen to.
