"Scuzzy-pop" of Naked Hearts lures in Under the Radar

Good old Under the Radar had the nicest things to say about Amy Cooper and Noah Wheeler, aka the Naked Hearts. With a link to listen to the band's title track "Mass Hysteria," the mag had some kind words to say about the band who is picking up some fantastic press.

Under the Radar may have chosen to highlight our Brooklyn pair, but the way things are going, the Naked Hearts should and will be on your radar. Pun intended. The duo's familiar and visceral rock songs are sticking with listeners, and continue to make ears happy with each new listen.

"Former Rubies singer/guitarist and photographer Amy Cooper is now in the '90s-esque rock duo Naked Hearts. She's joined by singer/drummer, and jazz bassist Noah Wheeler, and the pair shares a home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. They also share an obvious appreciation for bands such as Sonic Youth, The Breeders, and Blake Babies on their full-length debut, Mass Hysteria.

The scuzzy-pop LP drops May 11 and recording took place at Vacation Island Recordings in Brooklyn, NY. Owner and engineer Matt Boynton (Bat For Lashes, Gang Gang Dance) is set to record their next LP. Check out the bass-heavy rock of Mass Hysteria's title track above and tour dates can be find at the twosome's MySpace."
