Heart and Soul
The Narcs – 1984
‘Heart and Soul’ was the biggest hit for rockers The Narcs. It peaked at number four on the NZ singles chart and took away four awards at the 1984 NZ Music Awards. A spare, brooding rumination on love, it represented a departure from the more full on rock’n’roll that had marked the band’s sound when they emerged on the Christchurch pub scene in the early 80s. Shot on a blacked out set, the video has all the hallmarks of a test run for a new digital effects suite — although that doesn’t entirely explain the red pyramid at the centre of proceedings.
