Alexa San Román and Dane Petersen (formerly of Love, Robot) are HEIRSOUND, a new alternative pop duo who are thrilled to announce the official release of their debut EP, Merge, which is set to drop on 8/5/16. This EP consists of 6 songs and in a unique approach to music, each song is represented by a color that has an aura and a feeling, ultimately spanning the color wheel. In the days leading up to the debut, HEIRSOUND will be releasing music videos produced by San Román herself, each with the corresponding color as the theme. To date, HEIRSOUND has released two videos from Merge, “Do it Over” and “My Own.” Merge, is the perfect description of this project, between the colors coming together and Alexa and Dane’s decision to start something new. Here is what the duo had to say about the release of Merge EP:
“This EP represents to us both the collaboration of two artists from different hometowns, as well as a metaphorical bridge from both of our older bands’ previous sounds to what HEIRSOUND is now. As our old bands were more heavily rock-influenced, this EP has both elements of that as well as more electronic sounds letting long-time fans ease into this new sound.” – HEIRSOUND
HEIRSOUND was formed in New York in December ’14 and is the brainchild of the creative talents of singer/songwriters Alexa San Román and Dane Petersen who were still in transition from a previous musical endeavor. Petersen and San Román set out to create an ethereal sound that they can call their own featuring their complementary vocals and guitars. Continuing with their theme, the two merged together from opposite sides of the country and will start their journey as HEIRSOUND with this debut EP.
First appearing on the public radar in October ’15 with the single “Do It Over“, the team’s new approach became clear following a few months of visual artwork posts/teasers. Shortly after the release of “Do It Over,” the band dropped a new track titled “My Own.” HEIRSOUND work together closely, and will continue to showcase their live performance until the EP drops. Merge was recorded at VUDU Studio, produced and mixed by Mike Watts, engineered by Frank Mitaritonna, Tom Happel & Mike Watts, and mastered by Joe LaPorta.
