Stubborn Heart - aka Luca Santucci & Ben Fitzgerald - set ears buzzing in 2011 with a (then unidentified) white label 12” and it’s follow up EP ‘Need Someone’ in 2012. The duo’s self titled debut of stunning and surprisingly poignant electronic soul (released November 5th 2012) emotes heartbreak over broken beats and dark, atmospheric space. The clean, ghostly production coalesces with Luca’s mournful vocal to positively ooze a bruised melancholy.
Equally inspired by 80’s and 90’s electronic music and 60’s and 70’s soul, Stubborn Heart never lose their passion for good pop music – everything from Hall & Oates to Timbaland. Recent comparisons have been drawn with the XX, Sbtrkt, James Blake & Four Tet.
