The Calicos – Heartbreaker

Although they never went away, The Calicos’ single Nova felt like a comeback last Spring. Two years earlier, the Belgian band followed their victory in Humo’s Rock Rally contest with three singles. Next, they took their time to fine-tune their songs and sound.Β Nova was the first result of their collaboration with producer Tobie SpelemanΒ (Geppetto & The Whales, Blackwave. and others).

Now, The Calicos serve up their new track Heartbreaker. I don’t know if it’s because of that title, but I hear Tom Petty all over it. It may not be a lockdown song, but lyrics like β€˜Another day wasted on the window sill’ and β€˜Another day passes by and you lost count’ sure give it that atmosphere. In reality, it’s a classic sad love song, including broken hearts, unanswered love and what not. But, frontman Quinten Vermaelen tells Humo magazine, β€œthe violins in the outro make for a hopeful ending.”

Heartbreaker is the second single off The Calicos’ upcoming debut album, which has been pushed back to next Spring.
