"Losing It All" by Heele feels like iconic rock pushing all the right guitar buttons

Losing It All by Heele, the alternative project of Michael Henss, a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in New Haven, Connecticut. Losing It All cuts a deep groove and (to me) has a decidedly 80's new wave (pop rock) vibe with kind of proggy tendencies and a romantic wave tone. I thought of the iconic Tears For Fears even though Henss pumps some bigger rock sounds into the mix pushing a big guitar break that is heavy and lush. The hooks are a plenty. 

Henss currently plays drums with the band Hellrazor and played drums (previously) with the band Dead Wives. He has been working on the Heele project since 2015 while working as a music educator, television composer and freelance audio engineer.
