Bronte Public Housing releases romantic song “Sleepyhead”
The perfect soundtrack to a day at the beach or a lazy Sunday in, Bronte Public Housing’s debut single ‘Sleepyhead’ is easy, breezy, and the epitome of Summer. A beautiful love song with a bit of a funky vibe to it at times and a beautiful guitar solo. The vocals are addictive.
The project of Sydney’s Jimmy Heathwood, frontman of rock outfit Hiaground, Bronte Public Housing demonstrates an exciting and unheard versatility from the multi-instrumentalist. A cool blend of indie rock and psych pop, the dreamy and peppy instrumental drifts effortlessly, with the sentimental lyrics and irresistibly cheery melodies echoing those feel-good, hazy mornings.
“‘Sleepyhead’ was recorded in 2017 as a demo but that original, spontaneous recording is what ended up the final version. It’s got a feeling of freedom and nostalgia that I cherish,” Jimmy explains.
Capturing his DIY aesthetic, the accompanying music video is entirely self shot on Super 8 film. Bringing the bright aura to life, the clip sees Heathwood and his friends across the salty Northern NSW beaches. A fitting visual accompaniment, the video is warm and nostalgic, playing out like the long lost tape to an old family holiday.
While this is the first taste of Bronte Public Housing, the project was dreamt up in late 2017 whilst Jimmy was in the studio with close collaborator/producer Oscar Sharah (Mesmeriser, Oscar & The Grouches). Together they have a long history since their first bands in early 2013, and Sharah’s production flourishes compliment the Bronte Public Housing sound perfectly.
