"Bliss" is the first song off of Niagara on The Lake, Ontario alt-rock four-piece and newly inked New Damage Records signees, Heavy Heart's new LP. The track plays host to distorted guitar notes and howling vocals about feeling despondent with the band's signature mix of dark tones with bright vocals. All while giving a taste of what's to come with their new album, Bliss is set to come out June 24th.

"'Bliss' was the first song written for this LP," drummer Davis Maxwell explains. "It made sense to start the record with a song that acknowledges the fleeting nature of success and the difficulty in creating a piece of unique art in an age where everything is hyper-connected." Listen to the track below.
