Get excited—Culture Wars has released their new single, “Heaven!” The Texas-based alt-rock group has kept us at the edge of our seats since their 2021 EP teche captured our hearts and ears with a catchy, energetic blend of synths and sweet vocals. Produced by the band’s own Caleb Contreras, the track features the signature mash-up of R&B and pop styles that allow diverse audiences to connect with Culture Wars‘ music.

“It became a daily ritual. I would wake up, walk the long way down Bondi Beach to get coffee and breakfast. Come back to my rental unit, and log onto Zoom to begin writing with Caleb,” frontman Alex Dugan shares about the writing process. “For me, it was 10 am, but for him, it was nighttime. ‘Heaven’ was written in two parts, the verse in Bondi, and the chorus after I had moved units to Edgecliff.”

He continues, “I was living in Sydney by myself for about a year, chasing a girl that I was in love with (and still am). Finding my way in Sydney knowing no one else, writing an album that didn’t exist yet. And thus meaning quite literally, ‘All I have is your love.’”

The song is an ode to love in a snappy, clear rush of notes and vocals that communicates that feeling of euphoria in love juxtaposed with the fear of losing it. Thematically, the release matches the circumstances and feelings of longing which Dugan wrote the song under.

“Heaven” has love at its heart, the same way heaven is intrinsically associated with the feeling of love. The two are the same. The song examines the lengths we must go through and the sacrifices we must make to be worthy of either.
