Suday
Heavenly Beat is the side project of Beach Fossils bassist John Pena. He began writing and performing under the moniker in late 2009, crafting dreamy electro-pop around his gentle vocals. The first Heavenly Beat release, the Suday single for Captured Tracks, arrived in 2011, followed by the Faithless single soon after. Pena began work on a Heavenly Beat album in 2012, resulting in Talent, released that July. He left Beach Fossils soon after to focus on Heavenly Beat full-time and began work on a second album. After scrapping the results of sessions that took place in a real studio, Pena retreated to his house to record. Prominence, which featured Pena playing all the instruments aside from a few keyboard parts done by Daniel Schlett and Christian Barsi, was released by Captured Tracks in October of 2013.
