Miles and Miles

By: Laurie Gallardo

Put the go-to retro label aside for a minute. The Heavy Heavy moves beyond that with a multi-layered ‘60s sound on their debut EP Life and Life Only. The way Georgie Fuller and Will Turner channel psych and mod influences with folk and soul in a timeless shimmer feels more instinctive than imitative. Then again, it’s also refreshing to see Fuller and Turner freely embrace the artists who’ve inspired them along the way, from the most obscure (do yourself a favor and look up The Action) to legendary figures like Paul Weller.

The Heavy Heavy is back in Austin to play a show tomorrow night, Wedensday Sept. 27, at The Far Out Lounge and Stage in South Austin, with The Mellows open the show. Doors at 6:30 p.m.
