Former singer of the recently broken up indie band Yellow Ostrich, Alex Schaaf is now working on a solo project under the name of Human Heat. Though taking a much more electronic-pop route, Schaaf’s vocals remain on the same level of Thom Yorke-esque serenity. That said, ‘All Night’ harks similar tones to Metronomy in its emphasis on guitar and synth, subsidised by smooth and sensual vocals including that of T. Lieberson. As the song progresses, out pop soulful vocals, building ‘All Night’ into a greater state of grandeur and class. Hinting at some R&B tones Schaaf’s new project propels him into a completely different spectrum of music while the presence of his vocals reach out to those fans of former band Yellow Ostrich.
