Catharina Jaunviksna is a Swedish musician, composer, sound designer and keyboardist in the Radio Dept. On “Hearts” with vocalist J. Cowhie, Jaunviksna hits on every audio pleasure center with this majestic and melancholy composition “Hearts”. Following the passing of her mother, Jaunviksna wrote this album as a conscious act of letting go of someone. “Hearts” chronicles that moment of clarity after a struggle for posession of someone you loved deeply. A shoegaze composition that smartly brings in her synth work and electronic programming into lush, symphonic levels, Badlands work truly stands out.
