New Release: The Wandering Hearts – Wild Silence

Having released their first EP Burning Bridges in November, The Wandering Hearts are kicking off 2018 with their debut album Wild Silence, out on Decca Records on 9th February

Speaking of the album, The Wandering Hearts say, ““The title track ‘Wild Silence’ is about an unspoken, unexplainable bond that draws people together. You don’t know why or how, all you know is that you can’t ignore or fight it. Everyone can relate to this feeling, and as a band we certainly can, so we felt it was a fitting title for the album as a whole. We met almost serendipitously two years ago and since then, we have built a deep, often unspoken connection and understanding of one another…We are so grateful for the support we have received in such a short amount of time together as a band. We have worked hard on this album and are so excited to be able to share it with people!”

The record as follows their winning of the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at The UK Americana Awards 2018. Handpicked by Bob Harris OBE himself, the Emerging Artist prize at the UK Americana Awards celebrates the breakthrough act that has particularly impressed the legendary music broadcaster throughout the year. The award ceremony will take place at Hackney Empire on 1 February 2018, where the band will accept their award and perform live. Discussing the award, The Wandering Hearts state, “We are overwhelmed to be acknowledged at this stage of our career and to be recognised by the legend that is Bob Harris, makes it even more incredible”
