Dark, soulful dub pop reggae.
Dub Pop trio Heavensbee formed in New York City in 2015 around the talents of Roger Apollon Jr., Megg Howe and Marc Wasserman who have all played in a variety of ska and reggae groups together and separately including Bigger Thomas, Across The Aisle and Rude Boy George. Seeking to create a unique brand of dark torch songs, the three holed up for six months over the late winter and early spring of 2015 in a tiny rehearsal space where they worked to hone their sound.
The group cites influences that run the gamut from Lover's Rock, dub reggae and ska (The Specials, No Doubt) to 80's new wave (Depeche Mode, Fun Boy Three) to trip hop (Massive Attack) and indie rock (the xx). Built around the dual vocals of Apollon and Howe, the trio's edgy, yet soulful dubby pop songs feature on their debut LP.
