There's always a note of nostalgia that comes with the end of summer. It's a special time- one that makes you think of driving with the windows rolled down, summer air pouring into your lungs.
Whether you're cruising across the country or across town, it's practically impossible to resist the joy of summer. Summer is freedom and sun-kissed skin. It is beaches, bonfires and lightning bugs filling your backyard.
Summer Heart's sound is all of this wrapped together with fun beats and whimsical lyrics. It is that nostalgia and desperation for sunshine, tank tops and long vacations.
The solo project of David Alexander, a singer-songwriter from Sweden, one-man-band Summer Heart describes itself as "spaced out homemade lo-fi grunge dreams with swaying psychedelic pop sounds spiced with nostalgia and some hopeful vibes." Only upon listening to the band can one realize the accuracy of this description.
Summer Heart burst into the independent music scene in 2009 before releasing its first album in 2011. With two full-length albums and five singles and EPs, Alexander has been making a name for himself. His music has been in television shows such as "Whitney" and "Teen Wolf," and has been used by several other TV and movie production companies.
To end summer and kick off the school year, IFC will be hosting Summer Heart on Sept. 10 in the Union. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale on Sept. 8, priced at $3 for Taylor students and $5 for the general public. They will be sold at the door the day of the show, at the top of the Dining Commons, and in the Union during lunch and dinner hours.
