Heart Stops

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Jade Puget described this Burials track to Noisecreep as a song "that almost like doesn't fit with the rest of the record." He explained: "I'm sure like lyrically and the tone of the lyrics fit but musically it's something we never really done before. It's another one of those songs that we wrote off the cuff. Just one part to the next so it's very natural, I think people are going to… I think it's going to be a polarizing kind of song. I think in that its such an interesting sounding song and really cool and the way his voice sounds and what I'm playing and the drums everything sounds kind of different than what we've done before."
