Austin-based Heartless Bastards premiered their new single “Gates of Dawn” yesterday, so I thought I’d feature them today for Throwback Thursday. I first heard Heartless Bastards when I was preparing for my first trip to the Austin City Limits Music Festival, where I saw them put on an excellent set, in their early years. Erika Wennerstrom is one of the top rock vocalists going right now, and nowhere is that more apparent than on my favorite (and their most popular) HB track, “Only For You”. This one is off their most recent album, 2012’s Arrow, and is a staple on my personal indie rock playlists. Enjoy and happy Thursday!
