The Captain Single Sleeve
Meet The Toy Hearts, a highly-respected Birmingham based modern Bluegrass and Swing outfit and one of the UK’s hottest acoustic acts right now. They release their new single- The Captain on May 16th- out on Wood Ville Music- the most requested song on their tours.
The Captain is the second single to be released from their new album Femme Fatale (out May 23rd). It is an extremely heartfelt ballad and was written by lead-singer Hannah in her room whilst at University. It is a song which explores an implicitly feminine account of the refusal to be controlled or dominated by those who hold a significant position of power within the industry, and describes the difficulties that she (as well as the whole band) has experienced within the British Bluegrass scene. The song has a strong message but is sung with beautifully sweet melodies and three part harmonies.
