THE MARVELLOUS HEARTS is a new project from singer songwriter and harmonica player Captain Bluetongue of The Blues Preachers.
The Marvellous Hearts includes some of Sydney’s finest musicians to create songs that are catchy yet thought provoking. Their sound is a mix of steady, solid and intricate drum patterns, melodic bass lines, tasty lead guitar with blistering blues harp washed in a sea of funky keys and “Earworm” type melodies that will stick in your head.
Their sound has been compared to The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, The Black Keys and Angus & Julia Stone. The Marvellous Hearts create music with a positive message.
“This is like a sonic time machine that can take you way back to a simpler time, filled with awe and wonder”.

“The Marvellous Hearts sound like what happens when you give crate- digging music fanatics instruments and tell them to go make a record. There’s snippets of every record they’ve ever heard swirling around in their sound. One minute you hear The Beatles, then it’s Bob Dylan on rotation, followed by a noisy workout that would shake the walls of the garage they might have been in at the time. Hell, then I hear a fragment that reminds me of one particular Paul Kelly song, and another faint echo that had me thinking Goanna. And yet out of this melting pot comes something distinct and un-pigeonholeable. And did I mention that they ooze attitude? I like them. Chances are you will too.” Stuart Coupe
“Had a listen to ‘Give Love’ on Spotify, loving the positive vibes! Those guitar tones are really cool too!”
