Indie Rock Quartet Produces New Music That Stays True To Themselves
Online PR News – 24-April-2014 – West Hollywood, CA – Tournament of Hearts, one of LA’s newest bands to hit the indie pop rock scene, will release their new single “Hilary” just in time for the start of the 2014 festival season. The new single, produced by the band, is set to release on April 28.
Since forming in 2012 and releasing their first album, Local Maximum, in February 2013, the quartet has been working on refining their sound and advancing as musicians.
“We love our first album like a child and we received a ton of great feedback on it, but we feel our next release is an even better representation of who we are and want to be,” said front man Mike Cowan.
The members of Tournament of Hearts originate from the Midwest, east coast and even as far north as Canada, but ended up in the sunny, hip atmosphere of Los Angeles. With a sound that represents a fusion of their hometowns and new residence in sunny LA, the indie rock quartet can easily fit the bill of festivals like Coachella and Outside Lands.
“We’re just four guys who came together to make music that feels true and authentic to who we are, but also plan on having a good time and enjoying the ride,” said Cowan.
Songs from Local Maximum and their new single, “Hilary,” provide listeners with a variety of anthems that send out a chill vibe, but with prominent drum beats that can make any audience want to dance and sing along. In the past year, Tournament of Hearts has also produced and released their own music videos for two songs off their debut album. Videos for “Watch You Dive” and “Another Minute” can be seen on the band’s YouTube account.
Once they release their new single next week, Tournament of Hearts plans to work on making their band a household name by playing shows throughout California and will also continue to work on new music.
