“Traditional-leaning country and folk music often dance along the sharp and rough edges of life – loss, heartbreak, yearning, and the desire for salvation. It connects the heart first, goes deep, and then gets into your bones. Toronto-based alt-country quintet Gregory Childs and Heart Lung are aiming straight for what’s under your ribs with their raw and driving new single, ‘From the Chest.’


Following up the band’s two-song debut, Baby Blue EP, released in late 2020, and a one-off single, “Lonesome,” released last May, “From the Chest” delivers a train-chugging emotional wallop and carries the band’s stylistic and songwriting evolution several steps further along the track. The sweet and savory counterpoint of songwriter, guitarist, and lead vocalist Gregory Childs and his wife, Tyrah, vocalist and tambourine player for the group, illustrates the duality of the song’s story of a man both grieving the death of his wife and pleading for his own salvation.” – Canadian Beats
