DAE - Heart Hurts - Stereo Stickman

DAE Heart Hurts


An anthem for the broken-hearted, aptly fusing the delicacy of melodic riffs and hooks with a heavy rhythm and gritty vocal truth, to represent the concept with purity and emotion – DAE impresses with ease throughout Heart Hurts.

Following up the rising numbers on singles like Fugazzi, Dae Phantom and What Happened To Me, Heart Hurts shines light on a fresh side of the artist and rapper DAE.

The track has the simple building blocks of an addictive pop classic – the repeat of the hook, the harp fingerpicking for familiarity and character – but at the same time there’s a clear degree of individuality to the bars, the tone, and the ultimately revealing story of the lyrics.

Musically unique yet relevant enough to appeal, with faultless production allowing and even prompting listeners to turn up the volume early on, Heart Hurts is brief yet beautiful in its depiction of heart-break and the lasting pain of separation.

The mellow backdrop suits the mood of the concept and vocal delivery perfectly well, making for a catchy track that begs for you to revisit whenever the melancholy of regret or past love gets too heavy.

Single out February 14th. Check out DAE on YouTube & Instagram.
