This is all about making it in the crazy music world and reaching your dreams. You dream of being on playlists all over the world and getting your music out there. Failure is not an option here, only making it all the way upwards. You know that you can get up there as the music is quality, you just need a small but loyal team to help you get there.
With succulent piano beats at the start, this is a wonderful song to get you in the mood for success. This is dream-life and also reflects about past hero’s in music that you used to look up to. That feeling has gone as you have worked out they are fake. You dream differently now and are fully focused.

Psychoacoustic Noise-Pop band Pulse Park rock in with this fantastic new single called ‘Apollonian Heart‘.
The four men first met some time ago on an arctic expedition in Qikiqtaaluk/Canada and started learning their instruments during the long polar nights. These were ukuleles that they had traded dry fruits for at the Inuit. After introducing a breeding program for bowhead whales the band decided to sing about this experience. Songs about the cold, the dark, cod-liver oil and dinky arctic hares.
With an enthusiastic start, the scene is set on what is to come here from this fab band. The vocals are a bit hard to hear at first but perhaps that is the point here. The band want you to listen closely, take the sound in and feel the vibrations. I like how the bass line roars like a hungry lion cub, bursting for an adventure and probably food too.
Pulse Park warn us about daily consumption here and how its damaging the world. This is a fine song from this excellent band who’s music is easy to get lost in.
