Richmond-based quartet Heartracer takes us from the highest and lowest points we go through when wanting someone in their new lush synthpop single “All At Once” where they channel the emotional intensity through sonic aesthetics. “All At Once” is the blueprint of dancefloor synthpop and the incessant desire for connection that is perfect for our summer transition period. It is built on a melodic architecture that makes your heart rate race up and down like the cycle of a romance. Filled with declarations of love and longing, “All At Once” aims at your at the center of your vulnerability where starry-eyed hopes meet with melancholic loneliness. Stream below:

Check out the stripped version below:

Produced by Andrew Lappin (Passion Pit, M83, St. Lucia), “All At Once” was recorded during a span of two and a half weeks along with four other songs in the famous Sunset Sound Studios (where other icons such as Led Zeppelin, Kings of Leon, and The Rollling Stones have recorded). Comprised of siblings Chris (vocals, keyboards) and Chip Cosby (guitar), Bryan Reyes (drums, percussion), and Wes Tatum (bass, keys, vocals), Heartracer’s moniker was inspired by Chris’ tachycardia – a disorder that causes your heart rate to go up sporadically. The duo broke into the scene with their critically acclaimed 2012 debut album, In Flight. Since then, they have performed sold-out shows along with other artists such as Walk The Moon, Joywave, PVRIS, Third Eye Blind, and many others. The duo has two shows coming up this month, so see them in person:

6/15 – The Broadberry (Richmond, VA, USA)

6/17 – The Knitting Factory (Brooklyn, NY, USA)
