Review: Heather’s debut single “Sucker Punch” – May 20, 2022
Rock At Night Says: Face-melting guitar riffs blend with gritty, hormone laced vices in this newest song from Canadian rockers Heather. In their mission to conjure that quick hit of infatuation in a bar that we know all too well, “Sucker Punch” is dramatic and over-the-top extra. It would have to be, given that the main hook is “I would sell my soul to get close to you.” So you’d know that it’s a heavy-handed, visceral reaction to meeting someone new.
If you find yourself in a situation like this, don’t cave. Instead, indulge musically to get yourself out of a funk – while keeping your soul and your wits intact.
Heather is a five-piece rock band hailing from Prince Edward Island’s beautiful north shore. The band comprises Evan Martin on lead vocals, Colin Crowther and Jarred Kenny on guitar, Cameron Menzies on bass, and Peter Doucette on drums. With influences from bands such as Big Wreck, The Trews, and The Strokes, Heather walks the edge of tube breakup with groove-driven riffs and fearless vocals.
Having recently packed venues such as Trailside Music Hall and Baba’s Lounge in Charlottetown, PEI, the band is now gearing up to release their first single. Their first studio release will be funded through the Music PEI Golden Ticket program, produced and mixed by acclaimed Canadian producer Gavin Brown (Three Days Grace, Billy Talent, Barenaked Ladies, Mother Mother) in Spring 2022.
