Listen: Legendary Hearts – Fire Escape

This is the duo Angel Eyes’ Andrew Cowie was talking about during that recent interview we did, the one that involves he and Kieran Hegarty from Superstar improvising music that “makes them feel good”. This particular track, which features on a newly released cassette on Dungeon Taxis entitled Music From The Elevator, is six minutes of backseat cruising synth ‘n’ noodling.

‘Fire Escape’ sounds like a summertime relaxation tape smited by heat and road grime. The way the echoed guitar vainly tries to lock into the synth portamentos at the beginning kinda reminds me of a crew of cocky session musos lazily jamming after a few too many lemon Ruskis sank on the beach. I can’t help but also imagine a collage of iconic Californian imagery while I listen to this, and it’s true that the sonics Legendary Hearts trade in are only a hop skip and jump to earlier Ariel Pink, or even James Ferraro’s more Hollywood-themed stuff. Whatever the case, it’d be a right fit for a bachelor pad/drug den too far away from local amenities. We’ll have a full review once we hear it all.
