about

This album was finished in May of 2019 after sorting some stuff out, we are finally releasing this album with Z Tapes! :)

"the dim fire under the grass is moving closer to the house"
(yr mind)

-small albums


“Any Day”, which immediately caught us off guard with its charming ramshackle breeziness that melds loose, shuffling acoustic guitar with a vocal smoothness and polish akin to contemporary R&B, all while sounding as though it were recorded on a boombox.

“Nothing” and “Private Reserve” are probably the most “pop” tracks on Aurora along with “Yr Mind”, though all three take on distinct attitudes from each other

“Good Smoke”‘s drifting haziness is accentuated by warped synthesizers that dangle the listener over the precipice of of a psychedelic abys

"Aurora is strikingly beautiful, colorful, and layered for a modern indie rock record. The rollout might have been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait as Unicorns at Heart further establish themselves as rare"

-Counterzine (counterzine.com/2020/08/02/album-premiere-review-unicorns-at-hearts-aurora/)



"‘Lovejoy Fountain’ is a cacophony of thoughts and premises that meld into this buttery petal of vision and surprising beauty. Just like their latest LP ‘Aurora’, a culmination of depth and poetry exude through this intrinsically charming project."

-CHF STAFF



"[February Sky] Isolated jangly riffs, coursing through a perfect sense of lo-fi melancholia and natural left field. A superb sound for those who love their lo-fi just that little bit weird and escaping the confines of a bedroom."

Jangle Pop Hub (janglepophub.home.blog/2020/07/28/beat-the-delete-0068-weekly-new-music-recommendations/)



"Unicorns at Heart has on Lovejoy Fountain one of the best intro’s I’ve heard on a lofi track for a while - nothing flashy, just strangely soothing.

The track sounds like what Bon Iver would have created in his cabin if he had been listening to a mix of Ulrika Spacek, Built to Spill and Beach Boys. Actually, being locked in a cabin with just records by those three bands would be one of the most blissful things in these times, possibly also outside of these times. If you pair it up with what is coming out from Unicorns at Heart, it’s almost your deserted island list?"
