Vast Hill’s new single Heartbreaker is a slice of shimmering synth-pop brilliance

On their latest single Heartbreaker, Vast Hill deliver an irresistible retro-synth classicseducing us to the nearest dance floor. The Sydney-based dream-pop duo perfectly blend melody and groove, crafting a four-part harmony that will have you swooning.

A new staple for dance floors everywhere, Vast Hill’s Heartbreaker blends 80s synth with modern bass grooves to deliver an outstanding dream-dance track.

After the release of their debut EP The Win, the duo have dived headlong into a full-length feature album. The upcoming LP will detail the rise and fall of a fleeting romance in a small town with lots of secrets.

Taking influences from bands such as The Cranberries, Electric Youth and The Human League, Vast Hill are effortlessly blending styles from the 60s, 80s and present dance music.

Heartbreaker is a clean convalescence of Elle Kress and Adin Milo’s musical and visual stylings. Set in a vintage house, the two heartbreakingly beautiful humans stay relatively placid as they play their way through the song. It’s a glaring contrast with the tune, as all it makes us want to do is get up and dance.

The smooth relationships between the pads, synth, and bass create the distinctly disco feeling of defying gravity. We can’t wait to see what the future will yield for the efforts of this formidable songwriting duo. The catchy hook and sublime vocals sit perfectly in the breezy feel of the track and we can’t wait to catch them live around town.

If you have a spare few minutes, or the urge to dance, Heartbreaker will absolutely and undeniably get you off your ass and grooving.
