ROONEY – SINGLE REVIEW

Rooney – My Heart Beats 4 U (Beachwood Park Music) 
Rooney - My Heart Beats 4 U


Release Date: Out Now

LA rockers Rooney are back with a new single and are probably blissfully unaware of the moderate performance of their footballing namesake in France at the moment. Despite sounding like the title of a boyband mega-ballad, ‘My Heart Beats 4 U’ is actually an indie-pop stomper with real purpose. The chugging, pounding and relentless verse soon gives way to something a little smoother and more mainstream. This is part the Killers, part early Maroon 5 but then features enough balls and grit to pack more of a punch as the guitars snarl like Kings Of Leon and there’s the swagger of bands like Weezer or OK GO. The video is gently trippy as well which is always a good thing. I have to admit to having missed out on Rooney in the past despite numerous chances to check them out. Shame on me, don’t make the same mistakes I did.
