You Must Hear ‘Heal’ by AUGUST
Location: London, UK
FFO: Brookzill, Samuel Lane
‘Heal’ is a track of epic proportions. Opening with sparse piano playing, the emotion is left to the fragility in AUGUST (Stephen Hughes)’ voice. As the track progresses his voice begins to move around, building up to a falsetto which soars above the song. The acoustic version of this track is beautifully simplistic, but it is also exceptionally memorable and will be echoing in your ears long after the last chord is played.
Explaining the idea behind ‘Heal’ Hughes stated: “The initial idea came after a friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer. Myself, and a bunch of close friends, felt totally helpless seeing someone we cared about hit by tragedy so young and all we could do was hope for a miracle. HEAL taps into that desire for hope to reach into a dark place.”
August has recently appeared live supporting Meadowlark & Frida Sundemo and has previously supported 21 Pilots. He is an artist going from strength to strength and we can’t wait for what the future may hold.
