Ikonic Visual: Towers and Trees - "Head Down / Heart Up"

Music, an entity designed with therapy in its' seams, truth in its' buttons and a custom fit to its' creator, that in most cases relates to other souls around the world, makes it one of the most powerful forms of expression. Towers and Trees made one of those therapeutic records with their uplifting and lyrically striking new single "Head Down / Heart Up." An amazing energy pulsates through with a message of strength, admission and leading with your heart and not your head. These rising parvenues make a strong comeback from a long hiatus but the wait - well worth it!

Towers and Trees states, “Head Down Heart Up” is an anthem for the overthinkers of the world; a reminder and challenge to turn the volume knob in your head down, and let your heart take the wheel every once in a while because it almost always knows where to go. There’s so much noise these days, and so much information coming from every direction, that I think a lot of people identify with this anxiety and ‘analysis paralysis’ from our minds working overtime to try and take everything in and make sense of it all. Despite this, almost all of the things that truly matter – family, community, helping others, self-love – these are products of the heart that can be easily drowned out by the excess noise."
