    A decade after teaming up in the Exploding Hearts, Terry Six and King Louie Bankston are back together with a brand new single. Picking up where their previous projects (Six's Nice Boys and King Louie's Loose Diamonds and Missing Monuments) left off, Terry & Louie are still combining vintage power pop hooks with an updated attitude and urgency.

    After a self imposed exile from music and an exodus from Portland, Terry found himself resettled in Oakland, California ready to start a new chapter with an old friend. After months of phone calls planting the seeds of collaboration, Louie flew out west from New Orleans and the pair went to work. Now the dust has settled and the fruits of their collaboration is a project that incorporates the last remaining links to an unforgettable and timeless band- and it does not disappoint.

    Recorded at the Tuff Shed Bunker in Oakland by Six and featuring session drummer extraordinaire Garett Goddard (Cuts, King Tuff, Personal & the Pizzas, Girls), "(I'm) Lookin' For a Heart" b/w "She Loves Him" is the first of two singles the duo have lined up to launch Six's record label, Tuff Break Records.

    Taking cues from 70's UK pub-rockers ala Nick Lowe and Eddie & the Hot Rods "(I'm) Lookin' For a Heart" is filled with catchy hooks and charming lyrics, this single is a must have for any record collector or any fan of catchy first wave punk and traditional power pop.

    The B-Side "She Loves Him" is truly a perfect Power Pop ballad. Think Phil Seymour and The Ramones joining forces to give you a heart melting classic.

I gotta brain I'm really smart I got feet too fast to beat I feel no despair- and I'm looking for a heart I learned to love she was twice my size Came up for air and I begged for life And I just don't care- and I'm looking for a heart I'm always looking over my shoulders I'm running backwards down the street I'm kicking everything over and over and over just for kicks I save myself, but not this world I spent my money, on Daddy's girl And I'm down, and I'm looking for a heart When I retire to the Killing Fields Eat what I kill, to make a meal And I just don't feel So I'm looking for a heart I gotta heart so hard to beat It's bleeding out on a one way street I see you lying there, it's where I should be

It was a summer night so took a ride I fell for you but there's another guy and I cant help but - wishing you were with me Well I'm a loser and I always was they're gonna make a fuss bout the two of us and I can't help from feeling so down and out I heard what you're sayin' - it is clear I was stranded in a pool - of my tears Well I guess that's the way things ought to be Cuz she loves him and not me I love her so, never let her go I see the light, she loves him tonight Oh lord, it's said and done If ya, follow him - it's all or none And I can't help but, wishing that it was me And now I'm prayin' That you're here to stay so dont ya run away, on your birthday And I can't help but wonder if our love is true I don't have money, don't have fame I got a pocketful of change, to my name It's a long, sad, story - but it's true Cuz I am yesterday's news I love her so, never let her go I see the light, she loves him tonight Hey girl, I'm fallin' to my knees You left in misery so won't you please come back to me And then you did, I feel much better than him I love her so, never let her go I see the light, she loves me tonight
