Having just played an exquisite showcase for the Ballard Day Hood-to-Hood Celebration, Nila Leigh and Sam Ford of Goodbye Heart are ready to take over Seattle and its surrounding areas, provided you let them. Well-versed musicians, the outfit has been making music since 2007, back when they lived in NYC and performed under the name "Cady Wire." Arming themselves with the soundtracks to your pleasant dreamscapes, they've heightened the stakes in today's Live Video by previewing a lush, lyrical track, entitled "Optimo." And, if you like the two and their new music (which you will), you can download "Just Kids" from our Song of the Day Podcast, check out an exclusive KEXP interview here, and see them for yourself this Thursday, June 26, at Chop Suey. But first, watch their in-studio session right here:
