Heliotropes is comprised of founding member/songwriter/vocalist Jessica Numsuwankijkul, along with a rotating cast of collaborators, including drummer Gregg Giuffré, bassist Richard Thomas, and guitarist Ricci Swift, who are all featured on Over There That Way.
An eclectic songwriting approach that traverses a multitude of rock genres (from the 60s to the 90s mainly) but underpinned by a very modern indie/alternative rock aesthetic. Arrangements are spartan at best but left-field components like vocal harmonies keep things interesting.
“Normandy”, “Wherever You Live”, “War Isn’t Over”, “Easy”.
Pixies, Throwing Muses, Breeders.
Presented in a deliberately austere lofi style which might turn off pristine sound purists but will excite most discerning rock listeners (90s rock fans especially).
