UK Americana’s rising stars share Burning Bridges EP and news of a UK headline tour for February and March
Just after the news of The Wandering Hearts being awarded the Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award award at the UK Americana Awards taking place at Hackney Empire next January, the band now share their debut EP with title track Burning Bridges, out via Decca Records now.
During their live shows the single is often performed off mic and will leave the audience blown-away like at their recent show at London’s Borderline. Also on the EP are another two live favourites with Nobody’s Fool and Never Expected This, alongside a beautiful cover of Band of Horses’ No One’s Gonna Love You.
About the single, The Wandering Hearts say, “Burning Bridges is about reaching out to those around you to find some hope in the world when you feel lost, alone and don’t know who to trust. The EP brings together some of the earliest songs we worked on as a band, when we met almost serendipitously and everything kind of fell into place. We’re excited to get these songs out into the world ahead of our debut album.”
