This is the 2nd full length CD from Tallahassee 3-piece Soft Targets. After releasing their debut, "Frequent Flyer" in 2005, original drummer, Marcus Delano, left the band. Founding members Jesse Corry and Nathan Sadler didn't waste any time before joining up with drummer Steven Gillespie and the new lineup began to focus more deeply on harmony vocal arrangements. Soon the 'Targets were ready to head back into the studio with Atlanta producer Tim DeLaney (The Swimming Pool Qs, The Sightseers, Kopernik) recording a new batch of songs at two different Atlanta studios, DeLaney's own Electron Gardens Studio and the legendary Southern Tracks Recording (where they recorded 5 tracks in one day, live in the same room, to 2" tape). The resulting 13 song L.P., "Heavy Rainbow" takes the distinctive sound of Soft Targets first album (complex and sparkling clean guitar lines, surprisingly fresh hooks, intricate arrangements and great attention to lyrics) and builds on it, adding new dimensions to the songwriting, bringing in more layers and counter-melodies, experimenting with texture and song-form while at the same time, lovingly embracing the classic pop sweetness of bands like ELO and Todd Rundgren. Fans of "Frequent Flyer will find plenty to savor in the quietly intense smolder of the horn-laden "Sugar Glass", and the airy spaciousness of the beautiful "Dear Atlanta", and the circular atmospherics of "Surrendering Slow" while those who enjoy the jauntier, up-tempo side of the Soft Targets will dig the churning "Calm Me Down" with it's nod to the glittery groove of T-Rex, and the unrelenting pop push of "So Long, Baby Burns", along with other new Soft Targets' A-sides like "Something Else", "Under Control", and "The World Looks Bigger Now".
