Los Angeles’ rock collective Heartwood – comprised of Michael Armstrong, Pat Rector, James Prinzi, and Ameet Eini – brings work from a wide variety of influences to their music. Having met in the dorms at USC, their love of music brought them to a place where they are now able to share it with the world. This is the exclusive premiere of their single “Why Can’t We Make It”.
The track starts at a steady clip, layers of instrumentals already existent to fixate on. It is upbeat, making it feel like a feel good song, though the topic of the song itself questions the stability and emotions of a relationship. Poignant thoughts are drawn to the forefront with lyrics like “Why can’t we make it right now?… I knew so much less / to my best guess / All I wanted was my name in lights.” Check out the bittersweet song below.
