The debut album from California-based duo Heffron Drive, 2014's Happy Mistakes showcases the group's melodic pop sound. Featuring the talents of Big Time Rush member Dustin Belt and touring guitarist Kendall Schmidt, Heffron Drive have been writing together since meeting in 2008. They composed many of the songs on their debut during their off-time while on tour with BTR. This is earnest, yet infectiously radio-ready music that strikes a balance between sincere acoustic folk ("Parallel"), driving electronic dance music ("Nicotine"), and anthemic pop ("Panama").
