Heaven For Real 

Craft Single (Craft Singles)

On its contribution to the new batch of Craft Singles, Halifax's twin-powered trio offers the listener two salient sides of the same smirk. Similar to its nomenclature, the A-side--- "You Are One With The Iron-heart Device"---pokes sardonically at the idea of paradise. Singer Mark Grundy hints at several different moods and interpretations by peppering small vocal inflections throughout. The song is repeatedly stripped down to slight, truncated guitar riffs, making it seem like a playful gleam. On the flip side, "Hero's Code" is more of a sinister sneer: a two-minute mystery clocked by a ticking rim shot.
