ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Melodies, Reverb, Campfire Guitars - Betty, Thom and Kusi from Zurich, Switzerland cannot get enough. They formed their band My Heart Belongs to Cecilia Winter in 2007 and released their self-titled debut EP in Sping 2008. Compared to bands like Death Cab for Cutie and The Breeders, they describe their music as \"Cross-Country from the wasteland; between the Mamas and the Papas and the Jesus & Mary Chain\".
Their catchy yet erratic indie pop songs and their passionate gigs have earned them a growing fanbase in Switzerland. Now they plan to expand. Berlin Zitty Magazine praised: \"If they practise some more, they might become the new Arcade Fire\".
\"We are very enthusiastic about what we do\" confirms Singer/Bassist Betty Fischer, \"we are getting better with every show we play\". And Thom Luz, Singer/Guitarist adds: \"We grew together as a band in the lasts year - we′re like a hockey team. I think playing music with this band is my number 1 favourite thing in the world, potentially\". But they suddenly fall silent when asked about Cecilia Winter. \"It′s a secret\" mumbles Drummer Kusi Gerber. \"You know who it is, or you′ll have to find out yourself\".

haunting and appealing
I can’t figure out why I like this so much. Even for an EP, it’s short, about 15 minutes. Yet, their melodic tunes are haunting, intriguing, appealing … and I keep listening. Somewhat comparable to the Arcade Fire, I also hear echoes of Fivel and the Shout Out Louds, but their antecedents may go back even further to balladic traditions of male-female vocal interplay, just updated with electric guitars, drums and keyboards. “Country Boy” is likely the most accessible with its poppy keyboards and irrepressible percussion, but it seems to be about not dying from cancer. Heck, I’m not sure what any of the songs are about: “Destroyer”? “Valley or Mountain Chain”? And what about the band’s name? A musical mystery, but a worthy one.
