THE WANDERING HEARTS: “Wild Silence” LP

Harmony-laden Americana band The Wandering Hearts burst onto the scene in 2018 with their debut album Wild Silence.
Since signing with Decca Records (after being discovered a mere 30 minutes after uploading their first track to Soundcloud) the London-based band won the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at the 2018 UK Americana Awards and were personally invited to the US by music legend Marty Stuart. They became the first UK band to debut at two of the most prestigious venues in Nashville – The Ryman Auditorium and The Grand Ole Opry – in the same week. After receiving a rapturous welcome and standing ovations, the band were invited back to the Opry the following week, after a trip to Memphis to support Marty Stuart at Graceland – live recordings from this show feature on the band’s Deluxe album. The Wandering Hearts then returned to the UK for a summer of festivals including Latitude, Black Deer and British Summer Time Hyde Park, before embarking on their second sold-out UK headline tour.
Breaking all genre boundaries, The Wandering Hearts didn’t set out with a sound in mind and nor do they have one now. They’ll take the Americana tag because it encompasses all their influences – pop, rock, blues, folk and country among them, filtered through their British roots – but they’re still writing songs for fun and that shines through.
“We love a dark lyric,” laughs AJ. “We have so many of them that we sometimes play what we call our death set – all songs with sad subject matter like break-ups and dying. Most of them are upbeat, so it’s fun, but if you listen closely, you’ll hear we’re obsessed. Why? Because we enjoy writing about deep feelings but couching them in catchy tunes.”
