Pastel sketches of transformation paint Heaps’ upcoming debut full length, What Is Heaps. They recorded at Union Sound through the capable minds of Leon Taheny (Fucked Up, Owen Pallett, Weaves) and James Bunton (Donovan Woods, For Esmé, Vivek Shraya). The foundations were crafted in a series of escapes: suburban Halifax bedrooms, rural Quebecois disconnection, renovated Michigan church seclusion and Dale Morningstar's Gas Station on Toronto Island. Stylistic experiments among the four members has married earnest synthetic discovery with dense analog tradition. The result is an eclectic, rhythmically swelling collection of conversations and questions as an observer in uncertainty.
