The Attic Ends “The Heat is Hell”
“The Heat is Hell“…. sounds like the title to some very deep & introspective poem you would find on someone’s Tumblr that would really be about the author’s love for warm sweaters….. In this case… its the title to a very smooth song by indie rock band The Attic Ends. . I literally love listening to it the beautiful vocals mixed with the instruments. There isn’t any one thing that is dominating the song, like the vocals aren’t in a raging battle with the drums to out-do each other. “The Heat is Hell” is the puzzle of a very intricate & beautiful painting that once completed you want to tape together & hang on your wall & just marvel at for years…The Attic Ends just gained at least one new fan today….
The band formed in 2010 when Samantha Rex (lead vocals), Jan Christiansen (keyboard), Pete Hur (guitar) and Bob King (drums) met in New York and began writing music together. The quartet released their debut six song EP in 2010, followed by their full length album Home, which was released in December 2010 at a sold out show at Arlene’s Grocery in NYC. By 2012, the band released a two-part EP. Part One: The Sky Begins landed the band an in-studio performance on Fox Network’s “Good Day New York” and a headlining performance at The Highline Ballroom. The band celebrated the release of the second EP, Part Two: Mark of the Moon, with a headlining performance at New York’s Bowery Ballroom that raised over a thousand dollars for the CARE Women’s Initiative.
