I just finished watching the new Heart Hays video, “Straight for the Heart” and all I can really say is WOW! The song and video have alluring qualities; they are inviting, entertaining and able to keep you tuned in for just a little over three minutes. This is a must see and gets the Amped Sounds #certifiedamped cosign. Here’s my official $.02
The Good: I’m not a Pop person per se, but I know a hit record when I hear one, and this my friend is definitely a hit. It contains the elements of most successful Pop songs; it’s bright, cheerful and has a very catchy hook (I found myself humming the song’s melody on my way in today). Director Freddy Polania and his team did an awesome job with the costume, hair/makeup, and set designs. I love the little subtleties that are sprinkled into the visuals (the fireballs during the arcade scene and the cyborg effect on the kids eye were great). The acting was spot on. I could go on and on, but I’ll let you soak in the goodness yourself instead.
The Bad: Bad? Really? I don’t think so!
Overall: This is a hot vid that you need to watch over and over again. This may very well be the song that propels Heart Hays into super-stardom. It won’t be long before she and her music become a household name. Check it out, and while you’re at it, tell a friend to tell a friend. That’s my $.02. What’s yours?
