Heavy Feather are finally back with their new single “Bright in My Mind”, out everywhere on Friday, October 23, 2020.

The single is the first taste of their upcoming sophomore album ‘Mountain of Sugar’, to be released by The Sign Records in spring 2021.

60’s and 70’s rock influences and amazing vocals from blues singer Lisa Lystam are at the core of the new release.

Bright in my Mind” is the first single from Heavy Feather’s upcoming sophomore album. A roots-rock single oozing with a 70’s sound and feel, filled with attitude and raw vocals from blues singer Lisa Lystam.

Catchy hooks and roaring guitar riffs based on influences from the greats of the 60s and 70s create the perfect introduction to the record ‘Mountain of Sugar’, to be released April 9, 2021.

When Heavy Feather’s first album Débris & Rubble (2019) was released it became praised by both press and audience; taking the band out to tour Europe.

Now it´s time for their second album: Mountain of Sugar – an even rawer, heavier and harder release than the previous one, still with the root rock and psychedelic touch at the very core.

2020 started off with the band going into the No Regrets Fonogram Studio in Stockholm to record an album filled with soul and creativity. Still, with musical roots in the ’60s, the result was a rock album with a modern twist that undoubtedly fills a void on the rock scene today. Just like their first album, this one was also recorded together with the producer Erik “Errka” Petersson.

With some help from Pink Floyd’s former mixer table, he gave the songs completely new dimensions. In addition, the band had the honour to work with Magnus Lindberg, who has previously mastered bands such as Lucifer and Imperial State Electric.

The new single “Bright in My Mind” will be released on Friday, October 23 [this coming Friday!]. Heavy Feather’s upcoming sophomore album ”Mountain of Sugar” is to be released April 9, 2021, on vinyl and digital formats via The Sign Records.
