Desire | Tears From Heaven (Video)
Last week I wrote about the Chromatics’ track “Looking For Love”, which will be featured on Italians Do It Better’s upcoming 16-song compilation, “After Dark II”. Now there’s a third single for another song, “Tears From Heaven”, by Desire — a band which features Chromatics’ Johnny Jewel, along with two other musicians — singer Megan Louise and Nat Walker on synthesizer and drums. “Tears For Heaven” is a wonderful kind of 80s-based art-pop track, which also seems to be about searching for love, feeling and the self: “I stare out stained-glassed windows / But I didn’t see anything / I live just like a shadow / I didn’t feel anything.” This is record is slowly lining up to be a good one. The album will also include music from Farah, Glass Candy, Twisted Wires, Symmetry, Appaloosa, and Mirage. The video below was directed by Alberto Rossini. — David D. Robbins Jr.
