Haerts Photo by Rich McKie / WXPN
Electronic Pop From Haerts

Haerts, who stylize their name with the a and e reversed, join us in the studio today. Eccentric spelling is one of the things that makes this electronic indie band distinctive. Led by friends Nini Fabi and Ben Gebert, the band formed in Brooklyn in 2010 but the two friends actually met in Munich, Germany where they grew up together. Haerts released their first album this year after a well received EP in 2013 called Hemiplegia. We'll find out what that means, literally and metaphorically, and hear the songs in our interview today.
