Seattle's The Head And The Heart performed "Another Story," "Let's Be Still," and "10,000 Weight in Gold" from their latest album Let's Be Still in the studio of the New York public radio station WFUV. These three songs find the six-member band reflecting on the pressures of success and creating a new, more mellow sound. Soft acoustic guitar strumming, bouncing piano chords, and Jonathan Russell's warm voice all come together for a moody, meditative, and heartfelt performance. Give it a try in the videos above and below.
