This week I’ve had an absolute gem drop into our inbox here at Spilt Milk HQ along with some exciting news. Kent hailing, Emo/Alt-rockers ‘The Young Hearts’ are set to release their new EP ‘Honestly, I’m Just Thinking’ on September 29th through Primordial Records!
The EP will be an emotionally heavy one, as these lads take solace in their art as a release from the pressures and stresses of modern life, having all experienced close, personal losses. They don’t let it stop them though as they power forward to new and exciting things. Speaking on signing and working with The Young Hearts, Alex Boezeman, head of primordial records, is, ‘very excited to be working with The Young Hearts. It’s such a talented band and when we heard their new material for the first time we were determined to get them on board. The new EP showcases their incredible songwriting qualities. It’s filled with powerful yet emotional tracks that will stick with you after hearing it.”
If lead track ‘Smoke’ is anything to go by, then we have high expectations for ‘Honestly, I’m just thinking.’
Smoke is fast paced and points at influence from the likes of artists such as Moose Blood, with infectious melodies and emotion-drenched vocals that draw you in. This new-era of emo is reinventing itself currently and The Young Hearts could easily be at the forefront of it.
Be sure to check these boys out and give ‘Smoke’ a listen!
