Austin 5-piece Culture Wars released “Heaven” on May 30th. It’s the band’s first new music since their 2021 EP teche. “Heaven” is a straight-up rock song juxtaposed through the lens of the R&B/pop style production beloved by the band’s own Caleb Contreras (whose credits include THEY and Kacey Musgraves). “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,” shares frontman Alex Dugan. “For me it was 10am, 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.”
