Bio

Hearts and Rockets is a Melbourne based feminist punk band. Feelings is our latest single and features on our second LP, Power, out August 23, 2019.

We've played countless live shows with the likes of Screaming Females (USA), Dream Can (China), HEX (NZ), A. Swayze and the Ghosts, Hexdebt, MOD CON, Cry Club, and many more - plus spots at Sydney's King Street Crawl and Melbourne's Bush Festival and will appear at CHANGES 2019.

Our forthcoming second LP, the 14 track dude smasher, Power, is still anchored by the trademark driving bass lines and clattering 808 drum machine beats that have become synonymous with our sound, and glimpses of buzzing analogue synth will still catch you unaware. But it’s the addition of Kalindy on guitar that sets our new collection apart. On Power, we've reinvented the sound we created only 2 years ago, all mixed and mastered by Mikey Young.

Power features the brand new single, Feelings. Sometimes the feelings come, and sometimes all at once. That's OK, and it's OK to talk about it

The album also features a new, Power version of our 2018 single Dance Off; the party tune with a middle finger to the dudes at the front, which featured on a split 7” with garage-punk legends Shrimpwitch and had an incredible self-produced video that’s got to be seen to be believed. The version here is the single version.

"Power’s effect is in its simplicity: Hearts and Rockets don’t mince words, and they don’t waste time. Their short-sharp and catchy tracks are fun, without being vapid. They’ll make you want to dance, and definitely sing along, but heads up - you might elbow a few bigots along the way."

Feelings - the latest single, taken off forthcoming LP Power, available for pre-order now on blue 12" vinyl.

Dance Off - out on a split 7" with Shrimpwitch (October 13, 2018). Album version appears on Power.

Dead End Town - Our first single, and we just can't bring ourselves to take it down! It's off our debut album Dead Beats (tape and vinyl is sold out, but yo can find it digitally and on all streaming services).

It's like Le Tigre got left out on the deck over a hot Australian summer. Love the spooky fun vibes.
