Arrows of Athena - "Reckless Heart"

Something about Arrows of Athena just sounds like they're from Boston. The band started as a pandemic project of Scott Lerner and Jac-Lyn Gibson and just released a new single, "Reckless Heart." The song specifically sounds like late 90's Boston as the alt-rock scene started to edge its way into the world of pop, although we never would have admitted that back then. To me it sounds like if Letters to Cleo's Go! had gone a little deeper into the world of pop music. "Reckless Heart" still has a harder, almost industrial edge to a guitar than pop music would typically have, and it's this dichotomy of sounds that makes Arrows of Athena such an intriguing band.

Jac-Lyn Gibson says of her band's latest single:

“‘Reckless Heart’ is just the kind of song that no matter what genre you’re into, it just pulls you in right from the beginning. It has some rock, a little pop, and I’m obsessed with the overall ‘90s throwback sound of it. I’m a ‘90s girl at heart, and appreciate that Scott’s [Lerner] riffs are a nod to that time in my life. He has really embraced my love for a great pop backbeat while staying true to his own rock music background."

You can watch the video for "Reckless Heart" below. The Ghost Archives is due out April 26 on Belhaven Records. For more on Arrows of Athena, check out the band's website.
