“It’s about the despair of change. Having to reappraise your life and what you’re holding on to. It’s like that feeling when you just want to go for a swim and keep going. Wanting to be enveloped by something that will gradually pull you down. If you really, really want to survive that process, you can. We’ve all been there – people who say they haven’t are lying.”– Justin Hawkins
“Heart Explodes” finds the band in excellent form, lead singer Justin Hawkins well known and often used falsetto is not overdone on the track. From the first hit of the drums that anchor the entire song, which seems to ride back and forth between ballad and mid-tempo rock number. The abundance of emotion is fully present with every guitar stroke and lyric sung. The Darkness has become known for their unique blend of opera rock this single isn’t any different, as Folk-rock elements, even a banjo, can be heard well within the mix of instruments on the song. It’s a tune essentially about being caught between the apathy and wanting to change. Something that is often told but on “Heart Explodes”, The Darkness dig into what they are good at to find a novel approach to this subject matter.
