Music Day 2: The Heavenly States

The Heavenly States have a song on their most recent record, Delayer, called “Lost in the Light”, and it’s one of those songs that keeps you from hearing the rest of the album because you can’t stop hitting the REPEAT button. A blast of pure rock ‘n’ roll exhilaration. It was good to see that the song, and the rest of the songs the Heavenly States played tonight, lived up to that promise. In a way, the Heavenly States are playing what you’d normally consider indie rock. But it’s amazing what some energy and a rock ‘n’ roll attitude can do.
