Album Notes
Recorded over the winter of 2011 'The Human Heart Will Take Your Life' perfectly captures The Wonderful Lives' alternative folk rock sound and unique instrument combination. From the grimy dirge of 'The Dirty Bride' to the bittersweet 'Way Out To Sea', the harrowing 'Mary Lou' and the demented carousel ride that is 'They Were Waiting For Me' this collection of songs constantly rises and falls, taking the listener on a ride from love to hate, life to death and heaven to hell.

Inspired by such visionaries as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and PJ Harvey, these songs possess an insight into the human condition, revealing our failings and flaws, our ability to love and at the same time, destroy. With a tendency to be dark in nature and delivery, the music of The Wonderful Lives has been described as 'cathartic', rewarding listeners with gentle, tender moments and a sense of relief with the calm that follows the storm.

Sit back, grab a drink, and listen with someone you love. Or hate.

“The theatrically bent and delightful technicality make me want to listen to your music more and more, it's enticing!”

“It’s rare and refreshing to hear a band producing music with such dimension. Songs that aren’t formulated for easy pop digestion”

“..a sophisticated orchestral frenzy intertwined with bitter sweet interludes.”
