Tuesday New Music: Heart Beat Here by Dashboard Confessional

Dashboard Confessional: Heart Beat Here

Last week was a big week for concert announcements for the upcoming year and one of those groups getting in on the act was emo mainstays Dashboard Confessional.  Having spent a majority of the last half decade split between DC and side projects, front man Chris Carrabba is finally set on releasing the first new music from the band in almost 7 years.  While they haven’t officially released Heart Beat Here, it has been played at a number of shows so far this year.  Straying a bit from the vintage DC sound, the  song comes off as a bit of Americana  roots music, combining the likes of The Lumineers with Sheryl Crowe’s, Are You Strong Enough to be my Man.  They tale of relationship support is a bit of a stray from the normal peak or valley emotional bipolarity the band became known for, showing that as Carrabba has grown up so has his music.
