The Heavy follow up the garage-band madness of Oh No! Not You Again! with pure vintage voodoo soul . Sixteen asks the question: how much can you learn in sixteen years? The answer is, a hell of a lot, but none of it good. The story of a girl who wants to grow up too fast, taking in dancing with the devil, nightclubbing, drinking and piping on the magic whistle.

Press Release :
The Heavy follow up the garage-band madness of Oh No! Not You Again! with pure vintage voodoo soul . Sixteen asks the question: how much can you learn in sixteen years? The answer is, a hell of a lot, but none of it good. The story of a girl who wants to grow up too fast, taking in dancing with the devil, nightclubbing, drinking and piping on the magic whistle.

Produced by Jim Abbiss (best known for his work with the Arctic Monkeys), Sixteen sees Swaby offering up a soaring soul vocal over a beat that swoops and bumps along just right. Over on the B side, exclusive track No Time is raw and swampy one minute, all breaks and brass riffs the next.

All in all, another spine-tingling package from one of the most exciting bands in the UK just now, Sixteen is taken from The Heavy's forthcoming second album, The House That Dirt Built. With a growing rep in the States, festival dates lined up for the summer and a huge tour to support the album this autumn, the Heavy just may have been spending a little quality time with the Lord of Darkness themselves.

Just watch out for the Jordan XIs...
