The Young Hearts Interview

Championed by the likes of Kerrang, Rock Sound, BBC and Punktastic previously, The Young Hearts bring their own take on the alternative rock genre. They have toured and shared stages with the likes of Mallory Knox and Dream state and their latest single, 'Fool's Gold' shows a much more mature style of songwriting that has brought comparisons to The Gaslight Anthem.

I recently caught up with the band to discuss 'Fools Gold', quarantine and Bruce Springsteen...

"when a band from my school played a punk rock version of the school hymn in the morning assembly. I was 11 years old and it absolutely blew me away. From that point on all I wanted to do was get up on stage and play loud music with my friends"

Firstly, I have to ask this at the moment, how have you guys been coping in the lockdown, what kind of things have you been up to since the lockdown came into effect. 

Well half of us have still been working, so it’s been pretty hectic still, but we all enjoy spending time at home so we’re lucky in some respects. Not being able to rehearse or play shows, or even get together socially has been difficult though so we’re looking forward to getting back to normality.
