My Heart’s Desire – the eerie electronic soundtrack to your wildest dreams and deepest fears
The fourth single from Us, ’My Heart’s Desire’, is like a dark, stately outtake from the soundtrack to a late-period Kubrick film. It sounds like Massive Attack and Muse backing a choir of fallen angels.
Here, ex-Geneva singer Andrew and Lowe frontman Leo take filmic inspiration from Stanley Kubrick, Jonny Greenwood, Hans Zimmer and the conflicted, dislocated feeling you get of being in the wrong place but being unable – and unwilling – to leave.
‘My Heart’s Desire’ takes Us down into deeper, darker, more delirious territory than before.
Us play widescreen, beautiful, electronic music that is the dystopian film soundtrack to the end of an affair or a broken dream, combining Leo’s epic wall of synths with Andrew’s unique vocals.
