The Head and the Heart were here last week recording and finishing songs for their new album, which they began in Joshua Tree, California and decided to move the project to us. The band started in 2009, branched off into different cities in 2014, and told us that when they got here they had been thinking about parting ways again, but that their experience at the Refuge really brought them back together as a band. Notable awards include being named “Seattle’s Best New Band” in March 2011 by Seattle’s City Arts Magazine, their self-titled 2011 album becoming one of Sub Pop Records’ best-selling debut releases ever, with the album reaching the Billboard 200 Album Charts at #110 and the record staying on the chart for 10 weeks. In 2013 their second album Let’s Be Still reached #10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The band has not only headlined many of their own shows, but has also opened for names like Vampire Weekend, Dr. Dog, and Dave Matthews among others. Their songs have been featured in multiple television programs including How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, The Good Doctor, and in the theatrical trailer of the movie Silver Linings Playbook. Thank you to Honeytone Music for outfitting our halls with their incredible mobile magic, and for these photos.
