This little poem by an unknown writer well catches the mood behind the music of Heated Land, a band project founded in 2012 in Dresden, Germany around the work of singer- songwriter Andreas Mayrock. Inspired by many old and some contemporary artists of genres like Americana, blues and folk, the songs of Heated Land wander through wide landscapes and little ghost towns, bringing up feelings of longing, lostness, nostalgia and hope.
“Now the heated land is cooling off
under a big black sky.
Where a cruel god pinned a million stars.
A raven sails through the roaring silence,
while the sun´s escaping the dusty soil
like faint smoke – bringing memory and song.“
