The Heavy - 'How You Like Me Now' (single)
The Heavy return with next single from their forthcoming album, 'The House That Dirt Built' (release 5th October on Counter Records), a widescreen funk epic, moving from JBs shuffle to crashing break, Animals guitar and horn fanfares, a huge build which is set to bring the house down wherever it’s played.
As if the original wasn’t enough, The Heavy have compiled a superb package of remixes. Fellow West Countryman Joker gives the original a huge dollop of Purple and comes up with something sounding like Timberlake smoking skunk in St Pauls. Ghost takes the tempo down and emphasises the mournful backing vocals for a suitably majestic finale. As if this wasn’t enough, The Heavy have also thrown in a bonus track, 'Tell It Like It Is', a country-fried hoe-down which emphasises just how good Swaby’s voice is.
Produced by Jim Abbiss (best known for his work with the Arctic Monkeys, Adele and Kasabian), 'The House That Dirt Built' is a breakthrough record from one of the most exciting bands in the UK just now. With a growing rep in the States, festival dates lined up for the summer and a huge tour to support the album this autumn, the Heavy have just built their house on your front lawn. Get used to the view.
