Annette Pryce sits down listens to the new single by Heff Vansaint- Nothing Lasts Forever
We are ecstatic to review East London based, Scottish alternative pop artist, Heff VanSaint as she releases her debut track: Nothing Lasts Forever.
The former one half of synth-pop duo Miracles, who achieved radio play on the likes of BBC Introducing and Radio X, has gone back to her roots with a song that fuses old-school storytelling, with a contemporary lo-fi indie sound.
VanSaint has received a musical education in the creative spaces in and around East London. She has worked with Irish producer Paddy Hunt, who’s syncs include Nissan, Carphone Warehouse and Sky; and after cutting her teeth in various musical ensembles throughout the 2010s, VanSaint’s new solo material is a more mature and authentic representation of who she is as an artist.
It’s likely that we’ll be hearing lots of soulful hits from various artists as we come out of the other side of this pandemic and Heff VanSaint isn’t any different, with this atmospheric rendition about “lost friendships, a sort of platonic love affair gone south.” She goes onto say that it’s about spending ‘a handful of halcyon years with someone who you don’t see eye to eye with anymore.’ . She was aiming for bruised and introspective, and this hits the spot.
You can get her new single on Spotify here now: Nothing Lasts Forever
