Formed in 2015 by Sean Nolan (vocals, guitar), Sean Nolan and The Heartmakers is Chris Cross (vocals, lead guitar), Kyle Nolan (synthesizers, keyboards), Matt Bayer (bass), and Kenny Duclos (drums).
Since their conception, they’ve played countless shows throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan, released two records… And have recently wrapped up their forthcoming record, “The Machineries of Joy”, set to be released in May 2020.
On their new single “Or, the Whale”, Sean (vocals / guitar) comments: “It’s a song I wrote inspired by the themes present in Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick. Whatever we pursue, whether it be a relationship, a career, starting a band, it can be deeply frustrating.
Sometimes, we blame ourselves for the failures that come along the way or we look for reasons as to why something didn’t work out. But ultimately, it’s the journey that matters most, the pursuit. It’s also important to try and find what motivates us. If we’re constantly striving, unhappy with where we are because we haven’t arrived, we’ll never catch that white whale.”
