Up-and-coming Cambridgeshire duo Collars are set to release their debut single ‘Heart Beats’ this month. Previously available as a demo only, the track is an energetic, pop-fuelled confession of lost loves, weaving guitar-led indie rhythms with a vocal reminscent of Florence Welch.
It’ll be released digitally as a stand alone single on Friday 27 November via the band’s own label, Laundry Rooms. Fans can download the track in all the usual places, as well as the Collars website, and each purchase comes with a free enamel pin badge (if purchasing from iTunes, Amazon, etc. contact Collars with your receipt and they’ll send you a badge).
‘Heart Beats’ will also be accompanied by a video: a neon paint-dappled fit of nostalgia that was filmed entirely at home by Dan and Kane of the band, over three days during the first lockdown.
Based in rural Cambridgeshire, Collars is made up of Dan and Kane. Together they play their own brand of indie driven by vocals, guitar and pared-back drums. Dan sings and writes, while Kane plays guitar and beats at the same time thanks to some self-modded drums he negotiates with his feet. The results? Wholesome indie like your mama used to make! If your mama was Florence Welch and your godparents were the White Stripes.
