Alternative/pop band Heartracer, led by brothers Chris and Chip Cosby, release the “upbeat, infectious” (-The Honey Pop Magazine) new single “Edge of My Heart,” about positive relationships and the power that they have to shape us, out now.
“We are more privy to hear stories about abusive and toxic relationships so I wanted to write a song that explored the other end of the spectrum,” says Chris Cosby. I could almost see you through the darkness / you don’t have to close your eyes now / I can feel you breathing. “In this line I’m referring to the sacrificial elements of a relationship that go beyond self-gratification. Sometimes that kind of love is powerful enough to stop a downward spiral, to halt a fall, to catch them right at the edge.”
“The upbeat, infectious single is brimming with feeling and good vibes. The synth sounds make for shimmery production that radiates anthemic energy.” – The Honey Pop
“While a lot of tracks often deal with heartbreak and the toxicity of certain relationships, ‘Edge of My Heart’ is a sigh of relief. Giving listeners hope that there is real, genuine love out there, this is one track you’re going to need when you feel defeated and hopeless in love.” – The Daily Listening
It is one of two singles released in 2022, both to be featured on the forthcoming album The Feel (release date TBA).
Combining modern production methods with the classic pop songwriting reminiscent of simpler times, Heartracer’s sound is that of anthemic grandeur. Unabashedly drawing on inspiration from the pop icons of the past such as Tears for Fears and Aha, their sound provides a wide ranging pallete of interwoven synths, guitars, and swooning vocals that ultimately embalm the listener with nostalgic synth magic.
Joined by Wes Tatum on the bass guitar, Heartracer has performed with several internationally known artists such as Walk The Moon, Third Eye Blind, The Night Game, Future Islands, Joywave and many more. Heartracer has worked with the producers of M83, St. Lucia, Passion Pit, Beck, and Jukebox The Ghost. Heartracer is completed work on their new full-length album The Feel due winter 2022/2023.
