Single Review – Regina Spektor – Bleeding Heart

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Regina Spektor, she is a Moscow born and New York based classically trained pianist who has announced her fifth album Remember Us To Life. Her first album in four years will be a marker for Regina, who has gradually experimented and strayed away from the piano based tracks at the turn of the decade. Her new track ‘Bleeding Heart’ provides a healthy balance between her subtly delivered piano pieces and minimalist electronica presented in a innocent Pop fashion. The song is for the most part a delicate and steady piece of eccentric Pop, but it concludes with a full rock arrangement with reverberating guitars and distorted synths that allow Regina to unleash some of the power in her vocals. Remember Us To Life is out on September 30th and they’ll be some more interesting singles before that date so keep an ear out for them.
