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.
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. "Having a deadline means you're forced to make crucial artistic decisions in a very short time. You don't have the luxury of overthinking. I feel this process shaped the album. As a result, you become incredibly connected to the musical spirit of the band." says frontwoman Juanita Stein. "We loved every second of it".
Howling Bells are Juanita Stein (Vocals, Guitar), Joel Stein (Guitar), Glenn Moule (Drums) and Gary Daines (Bass).
