The Thing With Feathers has released their new video for the single titled ‘Don’t Break My Heart’. Alt-Rock just gained a new guitar hero. Melding a beautiful and intricate guitar line into an already solid modern rock track, we get a song as memorable as it is musical. But wait! There’s more! Add to that an originally gorgeous vocal flying over a solid set of rhythms and percussion and you have a future classic.
About The Thing With Feathers
With an immediate indie-rock feel, the track is about a relationship fueled by insecurity. Underneath the pop hooks and angsty indie lyrics there is an unapologetic, punk ethos in the nature of it, whilst the band continue to blend their affinity for artists such as The 1975 and The Strokes.

The Thing With Feathers are an alt-rock, indie pop and dance powerhouse, driven by David Welcsh (vocals), Alex Hendricks (lead guitar) and Chris Roussell (drums). ‘Don’t Break My Heart’, the first of five singles taken from their upcoming EP, follows their recent ‘Lights Down Low’ music video gaining excellent U.S. attention. With the track being added into rotation on MTVs Spankin’ New, a featured performance at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX, and a U.S. tour in support of their debut EP, The Thing With Feathers are now bringing their distinctive music to the U.K.
Discussing the track, vocalist David states, “‘Don’t Break My Heart’ is my way of showing my own process of accepting the things I desire. It is full of passion, guilt, and fear. It’s hard for me to accept the good in my life because usually I feel like I don’t deserve it. ‘Don’t Break My Heart’ is my way of telling myself that I do.”
“I am nothing but a romantic-idealist that loves the rush of being my own weird. That song gave me a place where I could make sense of my fears and hopes. It just flew together effortlessly. After I had figured out the lyrics and structure, I took it back to the boys and they were hesitant to play it at first. But by the end of the rehearsal, I remember Alex looking up and saying something along the lines of “Holy shit, that’s a hit.”
In support of the release, The Thing With Feathers will also be releasing a music video directed by Hannah Hall, the same director behind their previous videos for ‘Lights Down Low’ and ‘Sundays in the South’.
