The different influences behind this group's sound include funk, '60s garage, R&B and soul, altogether creating a highly-stylized audio experience not too far removed from that of a Tarantino film. And we mean that in the best way possible, as the famous director is widely regarded for his excellent use of sound, The Heavy's music sounds like it would be excellently used in a commercial or film (and it was- the title track from their How Do You Like Me Now? EP was used in a car commercial). So why they're still so underrated is a mystery, but don't cry for them; the UK band has over 4 albums since their debut in 2007. And lucky for us in Orange County, they've included The Constellation Room in their tour. So come and get heavy tonight with The Heavy and The Silent Comedy.
