Americana-folk quartet The Wandering Hearts have shared a new video for their latest single Burning Bridges.
The sombre number is taken off the band’s latest EP, also titled Burning Bridges, as well as their upcoming album Wild Silence which is set for release on 9 February via Decca Records.
Working with director Meji Alabi (Maleek Berry, Asa, Yungen), the quartet aimed to “come up with the idea of using dance to portray the key elements of the song: frustration, anger, loss, hope”.
Speaking about the new track, the band said: “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. Essentially, it’s about the frustration of the breakdown of a relationship but with the hope that you can come together and fix it.”
There’s no doubt that 2017 has been a whirlwind year for folk-Americana group The Wandering Hearts. Having released their first EP Burning Bridges back in November, and with a string of high profile performances under their belt, the band are now kicking off 2018 with their debut album Wild Silence, out on Decca Records on 9 February 2018.
Wild Silence promises to be a thrilling debut album from The Wandering Hearts. With seamless vocal harmonies, The Wandering Hearts are reminiscent of First Aid Kit and Of Monsters and Men, whilst channeling Fleetwood Mac’s pop sensibility and the storytelling of Chris Stapleton, all the while keeping their British roots at their heart.
Back in November the band announced a string of headline shows across the UK this spring including a show at London’s Bush Hall to finish it all off. Support comes from Texas musician Jarrod Dickenson for the London show.
Here are those dates:
18 February – The Louisiana, Bristol
19 February – The Portland Arms, Cambridge
21 February – The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham
22 February – Gullivers, Manchester
23 February – Broadcast, Glasgow
01 March – Bush Hall, London
