Relic Hearts’ name proved to be a happy accident, though a serendipitous one at that. “I misheard M quoting Tennyson in Skyfall,” recalls Jonnie.
“Instead of ‘heroic hearts,’ I thought she said ‘Relic Hearts.’ The line before—‘That which we are, we are’—hit me. We grow and change, but in any moment, what we are is all we are. That’s how we feel in this band. We’re doing what we love, and we cherish that. It’s like a physical object—a relic.”
As an artist, a clear vision yields an even clearer impact. That said, Relic Hearts know exactly what they want to do with their music.
“We always had a plan of attack,” exclaims vocalist Jonnie Baker. “We meticulously organized everything, and we set out to write songs that would be large in scope and feel, energetic – and absolute bangers live. They’re heavy, but there’s great melody to their heaviness.”
The State College, PA quartet—Jonnie, Aaron “Boss” Bossinger [guitar], Nate Peterson [guitar], Nick Walters [bass], and Dirk Taylor [drums]—had all cut their teeth in touring bands, performing on Warped Tour and beyond, in the years prior to forming Relic Hearts. In early 2014 however, Relic Hearts came to life with defined direction. Instead of blindly running out and touring, they honed a sound that artfully nods to a myriad of influences encompassing an eclectic musical palette ranging from Thirty Seconds To Mars and The Beatles to Imagine Dragons.
Now, these Relic Hearts will be shared with everyone.
