The Heavenly States
Here is a review instead of a bio Independent pop music doesn't come much better than that of The Heavenly States. This Bay Area based band is big on eloquent composition, maudlin lyrical twists, chiming guitar melodies and rock dynamics. They recently released a split-single with Coldplay, and one can see why. Were Chris Martin and company to cover a Heavenly States tune like 'My Friends,' it would shoot to the top of the charts. While the band display impressive energy on up-tempo songs like 'Car Wash' and 'Beyond The Great Beyond,' they take their compositional and performance skills to a new level on the slower material, highlights being 'Empire' and the aforementioned 'My Friends. Incidentally Chris Martin (COLDPLAY) said they were one of the top two bands in the world at his recent gig in SF!
