about

Dub Pop trio Heavensbee (www.heavensbee.com) formed in New York City in 2015 around the talents of Roger Apollon Jr., Megg Howe and Marc Wasserman. The three have played in a variety of bands together and separately including Bigger Thomas, Across The Aisle and Rude Boy George.

Seeking to create songs that explored the darker side of personal relationships, the three holed up for six months over the late winter and early spring of 2015 in a tiny rehearsal space in New York, where they worked to hone their sound. They approached each song like writing a scene from a movie or play, discussing the characters relationships and motivations.

The songs they worked on take their inspiration from ska, dub reggae and Lover’s Rock (The Specials, Lee Perry), 80's new wave (Depeche Mode, Human League, Fun Boy Three) and indie rock (Lana Del Ray, the xx). Built around the dual vocals of Apollon and Howe, the trio's edgy, yet soulful dubby pop songs feature on their debut LP "Soul Mates" to be released in the U.K. on Specialized Records in 2016.
