Dark Light

It’s been said that religion is the opiate of the masses. And yet, at least here in the U.S., rising overdose rates might suggest that actual opiates are the opiate of the masses. Whatever dangerous, comfortable warmth it is that pulls so many into those clutches seems to be appropriately present in Jadu Heart’s “Heroin Song”, a hugely spacious, sweetly sorrowful sonic-needle in the arm.

The masked alt-pop duo aren’t just setting out to create music, but rather an alternate reality within their art – one full of tree spirits, monsters, and a golden drum machine that’s presumably responsible for what you’re hearing here. Regardless of whether or not you choose to delve into the lore, the sounds themselves need little help to create an entire world when played in a dark bedroom. “Heroin Song” is a gorgeous culmination of every fatally romantic element that surrounds the drug itself, manifested as sweetly yawning vocals over pale neon instrumentation. 

She’s like heroin, but she cries in her sleep
And she’s nothing to me but a saviour

Feel free to get addicted to this one, and make sure to check out the other half of this double-single, “The Cure”, if you need another hit.
