<3 Beatz: Listen to Alex Metric team up with Stefan Storm on dance track 'Heart Weighs A Ton'


Last year Alex Metric melted our collective pink-V’d faces off with “Safe With You,” an electro-banger collaboration with Jacques Lu Cont and Nikki & the Dove’s Malin Dahlström. It ended up my Number 2 song in our Best of 2013 section, behind only “You (Ha Ha Ha)” by Charli XCX.

Now, following up his Hope EP from earlier this year, Metric is back bringing the indie dance floor ruckus on new single “Heart Weighs A Ton,” sidestepping the easy-street call of female vocals to enlist the voice of Stefan Storm, one half of Swedish production duo the Sound of Arrows.

“Heart Weighs A Ton” is a forward-thinking banger that has the UK producer back on our playlists, and while it doesn’t have the same immediate pull of “Safe With You,” this one gets better with each listen. The lyrical hook of “I’ll carry you/When your heart weighs a ton” is just pulling on our ol’ <3 strings, and that anthemic chorus and lush electro-orchestration has us all gooey inside.

Solid jam.
