The Heart Attack-Acks – “Love Me” and more

Posted: September 28, 2022 by Kat Meow in Heart Attack-Acks, NYC, Post Punk, Queens

Queens-based newcomers The Heart Attack-Acks have no right to sound as good as they do for a band who “didn’t have anything better to do.”  The duo Cody and Candace have been testing the waters with their own brand of discoey post-punk dance tracks.  Their beats are properly infectious party music with a snarky sense of humor.  Candice’s vocal has this nasal sneer, with all her vowels stretched and pulled by her Lawn-Guyland accent.  “Hit me with your love buuoooawmb” she says during their unbelievably tight track “Love Bomb,” and I’m in strum-a-dum-dum heaven.

One of their latest offerings is called “Love Me.” This tune has the flavor of Love and Rockets over Delta 5 bass, groovy and a little dark.  The lyrics are snarky camp telling of an Instachick stalking some man prey on the internet, and it makes me excited to see what they might make this character look like. In June, they put out their third track, a roller called “My Heart/My Mind,” and I am certain they could get a dance floor in motion. Let’s hope there’s a video or a show out there on the horizon so we can see how this plays on the eyes.  Their B-Movie type album art makes me think it’ll be lots of fun.
