Howling Bells return with their stunning new album, 'Heartstrings'. Recorded at London's Assault and Battery Studios with producers Catherine J Marks and Alan Moulder. 'Heartstrings' is Howling Bells' fourth album, and the first they have recorded in their adopted hometown of London (the band's debut, 'Howling Bells' (2006), was demoed in Australia and recorded in Liverpool, while 'Radio Wars' (2009) and 'The Loudest Engine' (2011) saw the band decamp to Los Angeles and Las Vegas respectively). Taking a different approach to the making of their previous records, Howling Bells made the recording of 'Heartstrings' an intense process, laying down a track a day for 11 days, resulting in a potent collection of songs. It's a return to the punchy, expressive and gothy blues rock with husky voiced frontwoman Jianita Stein in fine form.
