The Heavy – Know You Know

I have been following the “Heavy” since they released their second album The House That Dirt Built was released by Ninja Tune. The album takes vintage Motown and mixes it with Indie rock some like to call it “neo soul”. Kelvin Swaby seems to be the love child of Prince and James Brown. The alubm is a great listen all the way through, but what really makes you stop and take notice is when you start seeing some of their live performances pop up on youtube etc. Recently they played the David Letterman Show. You can see why David was pretty much speechless after the performance of “How You Like Me Now” other than to say “play it again” to which they were happy to comply. I can’t wait for The Heavy to start touring North America, and I think their performance on Letterman will help fast track that. Check the video of their performance here. Yes you have to wait for a mandatory commercial, but is well worth it.
