Johnnyswim Break Down Heart Beats, Track-By-Track (Pt. 2 Of 2)

by (@sllambe)

Johnnyswim, comprised of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez, are back in the hot seat to break down their music. The duo opens up about the inspiration behind the final three tracks on the EP, Heart Beats. And it doesn’t always come the most obvious place. The You Oughta Know artist recently sat down with VH1 for our ongoing Track-By-Track series to talk about drinking songs, death and break ups. It sounds dark, but it’s actually kind of sweet.

The second part the series focuses on the final three tracks: “Don’t Keep Heaven Busy,” “Make,” and “Annie.”

4. “Don’t Keep Heaven Busy”

The group swears that the song is NOT about death.

“If you listen closely, we’ll say, because it’s all there,” says Ramirez. “It’s about a romance that’s so passionate, that’s so magnetic, that even all of heaven has to stop and admire this story.”

Can you hear the same passion in the song?
