The Heirs are a Los Angeles-based band featuring Savannah Hudson (vocals), Brandon Hudson (vocals/guitar), Alex Flagstaff (guitar), Eian McNeely (bass/keys), and Brennan Benko (drums).

Adopting their name from The Smiths’ classic ‘How Soon Is Now’ with the lyric “I am the son and the heir to nothing in particular,” the band emphasizes suburban normality and the adjustments of being young and growing up in Hollywood’s undeniably hectic bliss.

Crafting melodic alt-pop steeped in a blend of ‘70s glam rock, ‘80s new wave and post-‘90s synth-pop, their sound is undefinable in its own glossy way. It’s not quite dance music, but it’s dancey; it’s not quite indie-rock, but is possesses an effortlessly cool edge.

This past year, The Heirs released their debut EP ‘Ecliptic’ on Capitol Records, claiming the electro- pop throne that Walk the Moon and Foster the People vacated recently. With brightly colored synths and playfully interchanging vocal

harmonies, the EP showcases a maturing as well as leaving plenty of room for growth. ‘What You Want’, produced by Bram Inscore- who recently worked on Troy Sivan’s “Blue Neighborhood”- makes the group’s most recent release since the “Ecliptic” EP with Teen Vogue calling it “your ultimate feel-good pop song.”

Today, they are premiering their new single “What you Want” exclusively with NKD Mag.
