Albums | helloworld Unveils Captivating Music Video for “Heartpiece”

Posted by on April 18, 2024

LA-based singer-songwriter helloworld debuted “Heartpiece” and its accompanying music video by Stumbling Productions, and it’s quite the treat. With a penchant for blending forward-thinking pop and 8-bit instrumentation, helloworld’s sound is best described as future nostalgia. In his first single of the calendar year, “Heartpiece” sees the creative wearing his heart on his sleeve.

“Lyrically, the song came together so easily,” explained helloworld. “We loved the idea of taking inspiration from Tears of the Kingdom and Legend of Zelda – where Link is constantly looking for Zelda to save her, comparing it to something that is totally unattainable that we all try to find in our own lives. For me, it was ‘the perfect girl’ or fame, money. I wanted to shape this song to be a ballad about constantly looking for this thing in the sky that you can’t reach, and you know you can’t reach it, but you find yourself waking up every day, treading oceans and climbing mountains for it. Something that doesn’t exist. Perfect doesn’t exist. This, to me, is the beginning of a journey – the start of a quest.”
