Heartland was the first incarnation of the three piece line-up which would later become Dolphin. The band featured Rob Mayes on Bass and Guitar (Throw, Springloader, Delphy, AD), Stephen Birss on Drums (Whiteboys, Throw, Cinematic), and Kevin Stokes on Guitar and Vocals (Whiteboys, Delphy). The band played 3 gigs in total all at the Zetland Tavern. This track was taken from a live recording played with Sneaky Feelings.
The band spend most of their time writing and rehearsing dark and melodic pop, and like many a band parted company over musical differences (a practice room fight over a song), only to reform a year and a bit later as Dolphin.
"Snow" is the only track released by the band although there was a reasonably good live recording made of their set of well-crafted pop songs. none of these songs were included in future line ups.
