SMSHNG HRTS Offer a Different Kind of Groove in ‘Do You Think About Me’ Video
New artists like Bryson Tiller, Alessia Cara and Leon Bridges have delivered solid R&B projects in recent months, proving the genre has evolved from the bold sounds of yesterday to a whole new world of different grooves and harmonies. SMSHNG HRTS is the latest group to showcase their own flavor.
Their new single, "Do You Think About Me," is an introduction to their sonic experience, which blends electronica, soul and alternative rock to create a lasting impression on the ears. "I wonder do you think about me, I wonder if you care about me / 'Cause I still think about you," lead singer Dylan delivers on the mellow groove.
For the accompanying visual, the Oakland, Calif.-bred band head to the studio to perform the song live. The video isn't full of trippy moments or colorful scenes; instead, you're focused on the simple joys of the music being created.
Ranging in age from 17 to 20, the group is comprised of Jaden on bass, Martin on drums, Cole on guitar, Ali as DJ and Dylan as lead singer, guitarist and pianist. They may be a bunch of youngins, but the performance above proves that their rough edges only adds to their charm.
"Do You Think About Me" is featured on their debut EP, So Cosmic, out now via RCA Records. Listen to the full EP here.
