Stubborn Heart (UK)

Stubborn Heart is a British electronic soul music duo consisting of Luca Santucci and Ben Fitzgerald.
They made a buzz in 2011 with a (then unidentified) white label 12” and it’s follow up EP ‘Need Someone’ in 2012. Having signed to One Little Indian Records in mid-2012, Stubborn Heart's self-titled debut has gained coverage from the likes of NME, The Guardian as well as BBC 6Music.
The duo’s debut of stunning and surprisingly poignant electronic soul emotes heartbreak over broken beats and dark, atmospheric space. The clean, ghostly production coalesces with Luca’s mournful vocal to positively ooze a bruised melancholy.

  Calling what they do "electronic soul from the heart" and citing influences from the '60s (Stubborn Heart is an old northern soul track) and '80s synth-pop, as well as '90s techno, house and garage, Stubborn Heart never lose their passion for good pop music – everything from Hall & Oates to Timbaland. Comparisons have been drawn with The XX, SBTRKT, When Saints Go Machine, Mount Kimbie, James Blake and Four Tet.
