HEARTWATCH. The name is new but the band - fka The Tropics - is no stranger to hoards of San Francisco's young and beautiful.

In late 2014 the group released their inaugural EP, Wind House, to national acclaim, solidifying their status as the Bay Area's favorite new band. Their critically adored live shows take a sonic victory lap through the very best of pop music from every decade since the 70's, crossing the finish line in the present golden age of West Coast music.

The band has been staying busy in 2015 with appearances at Noise Pop, Phono Del Sol Music Festival, and a breakout performance at Outside Lands Music Festival. They were recently tapped by MS MR as support to finish their most recent US tour.

HEARTWATCH are currently finishing their forthcoming record planned for release in early 2016.
