ARTIST FEATURE - SUMMER HEART

Summer Heart: the murky hazy dreamy sounds of summer and love. The kind you listen to when you "have nothing to do" on a hot afternoon but dancing on the sand to the rhythm of the waves and forking marshmallows in a sunset fire, shivering under a towel. The fact that Sweden's David Alexander spends his time in summer enjoying rather than cooped up working comes as no surprise. His music is teeming with experience, it is warm and aquatic, and bounces between electro-genres, not able to be pegged down as a certain type except one that keeps us moving. His full-length album will be released on his own record label, Sommarhjärta, later this year. Check out the rest of the interview here! Read more
