Splashdown is the first single from Heron's forthcoming new album
We are Heron.
Heron burned a path across the sky with the debut of their first full-length album in 2017, "You Are Here Now".
The record’s transcendent track, “Shores” has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and Spotify’s Deep Focus playlist. Its inflammatory counterpart, “Ender” is a musical alumnus of NPR’s All Things Considered, and the introspective “Archives” landed a leading role in Headlights: A Ride BMX Film. The band was voted one of the Post-Rock Listener’s Choice “10 Best New Acts of 2017,” and "You Are Here Now" hailed among its “50 Best Releases of 2017.”
In their upcoming second full-length record, members Ben Blick (guitar), Eric Morelli (bass), Boyd Lewis (guitar), and Nate Blick (drums) have crafted a seamless musical narrative. Leaving behind the sweeping instrumental ballads of their 2017 debut, and clawing their way into a sound that is at once dark, visceral, spacious and lovely. Heron hails from the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds.

Arctic drones Review: “You Are Here Now”
"Of all the promising new bands to emerge in the past several months, Heron may have the most exciting potential, possessing a rare kind of chemistry that can't be manufactured [...] Within its seven songs, the album triumphantly surveys calming tranquility, swelling hopefulness, darkness and light, sadness and joy, and an evocation of the natural world's crushing beauty."
Svbterranean Review: “You Are Here Now”
"Their calming, introspective brand of instrumental rock effectively reduces the tumult of the outside world, as well as that of inner strife, to a dull whisper. Thanks in part to its glossy instrumentation, smooth pace and atmospheric fervor, You Are Here Now is a welcomed addition to the post-rock canon."
