SONG PICK: Heavy Heart – Dowsabel
Heavy Heart is a good name for an alternative rock band, in particular when they delve in the realm of doomed love relationships. In “Dowsabel” Anna Vincent (vocals, guitar), Patrick Fitzroy (guitar), James Vincent (guitar) and Craig Brown (drums) tell their tale with a melodic, soaring dream rock song that feels grave and cathartic at the same time. And where does the title come from? The band explains:
“Dowsabel” is an old English word for sweetheart, and this song is about a love affair, but it’s a bittersweet, broken and defeated one. It’s about the jagged edges and the blood we draw; the damage that we do to each other in the name of love. Living in a room filled with dust, dying flowers, and the ghosts of unspoken words, we’re together but alone, too afraid to walk away, prisoners in an unlocked cage
