Check Out The Street Fighting Soundtrack of Ronnie Heart’s Latest Dance Sensation.
Welcome to Song of the Day, where we hip you to all the new local releases you should be caring about. By highlighting one new North Texas-sprung tune every week day, our hope is that you’ll find something new to love about the rich and abundant DFW music scene five days a week.
Ronnie Heart – “Kung Fu 22.”
RIYL: Being fast as lightning.
What else you should know: He’s had no trouble keeping busy the past seven years, DJ-ing monthly parties at places like MASS and performing at various Central Track events. But Mr. Heart’s only released one proper EP in that time.
No matter, last month he dropped a loosie that he can spin at his various DJ events. And I imagine he won’t be the only jock in town mixing this martial arts banger into their dance party mixes.
For this latest single, Heart reconnected with synth man Max Townsley (The Colurs/Roy G. & the Biv), who harkens back to the days when they were in the first incarnation of Neon Indian’s initial live band. The contributors are rounded out by flautist Juan Ospina and guitarist Austin Lee Kroll.
It might not signal a new album or world tour, but its heavy handed flute-based chorus is all about the right here/right now. It’s a thing nearly impossible to resist shaking a hip to, and we reckon that’ll suffice when Heart drops the digital needle on it at is next residency.
