The band members each followed their own path of charity and enrichment for a while, going off on different personal projects. When the Head And The Heart regrouped last summer in Stinson Beach, Ca., to start writing together again, it almost felt like they were a new band, Zasche said. “We stayed at a bungalow on the beach. We’d wake up, have coffee and go boogie boarding. We were ready and excited to be back together.”
That renewed sense of purpose can be felt throughout Signs Of Light, the group’s first release for Warner Bros. Records. “This album isn’t about us now having achieved our dreams,” Thielen said. “The day we started being able to live off our art was the day we achieved our dreams, in my mind. This is the album where we really fell into our true voices as those artists.”
Recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant), Signs Of Light is upbeat. The Lead single “All We Ever Knew,” which was written during the “Let’s Be Still” era but never captured to the band’s satisfaction until now, while “Turn It Around” seems primed to be a future concert staple, matching its inspirational message with a lush and multi-layered soundscape.
