Beaty Heart are Peckham-based alt-pop trio Charlie Rotberg, Joshua Mitchell and James Moruzzi, who released their acclaimed debut album Mixed Blessings in 2014, championed by the likes of Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart and Steve Lamacq. Now they return with a reinvigorated new sound, influenced by the likes of Lee Scratch Perry, Arthur Russell, Roots Manuva, Pharoah Sanders and Floating Points. Beaty Heart juxtapose their musical and cultural influences from a captivatingly eclectic variety of sources, weaving an array of samples, instrumentation, and percussion into their sound to create something that is unique and distinctive.
Over the last year, Beaty Heart have been in the studio working on their second album with producers David Wrench (FKA Twigs, Caribou, Jungle) and Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Wilko Johnson), which is set for release this summer. Both their live and recorded music is accompanied by original artwork and video, which can be seen on the sleeve art for Flora created by Yves Rulliere and video, put together by the band themselves, coming soon.
After an extensive worldwide tour with Jungle last year, Beaty Heart have been performing shows in the UK and Europe and will be announcing further live dates soon.
