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.
