Hearts Beat Strong [4.19]


Lady Noir are a fully original 5-piece 'Junk Jazz' band based in Plymouth. The band started in 2014 as a pair and in time has become a collection of enigmatic and mysterious musos who emerged from the shadowy backstreets of the Barbican. Their unique brand of entertainment fuses the chromatic crazy of Chris 'Le Hat' on guitar and the sultry tones of Hannah 'Shady Lady' Leach dueted with Alfonso 'Garcia' Garcia on sax. The funk and rock influences of bassist Mark 'Trigger' Stuart with the percussive prowess of Andy ' 'Ole Chocolate Wrists' Naumann giving the project that gritty Junk feel.
Hearts Beat Strong is the band's second release from the upcoming EP. In contrast to their first single this one is more characteristic of the band – moody with a dischordant break down and broody vibes punctuated by haunting saxophone.
