Today, British breakout band The Wandering Hearts, who have already created much acclaim due to their transatlantic blend of classic pop and folk, return with their latest double single featuring two tracks, “About America” and “Not Misunderstood.” The release was accompanied by a captivating music video for “About America,” featuring the trio of The Wandering Hearts, Tara Wilcox, A.J. Dean , Francesca “Chess” Whiffin, watch HERE. Listen HERE

The new singles feature their signature harmony-laden melodies, and subtle acoustic guitar, blending Laurel Canyon and British folk sensibilities, narrating a timeless tale of loss, an ode to their adopted sonic home that is the United States, as well as a journey of conquering the metaphorical storms of changing seasons. Following their UK chart success, the band quickly found fans in the U.S, including co-signs from country legends such as Marty Stuart, debuts at The Ryman and Grand Ole Opry and press support from media from Paste to Atwood.

On “About America,” the band stated, “We wrote this song with our friend Emily Phillips after talking about a real-life tragedy, one of loss and birth and life. We took on the perspective of writing the story as outsiders and put it all together into a multi-generational folk tale of love, loss, grief and ultimately the comfort and kindness we need from those that love us, to navigate those trials.About America represents the songs we sometimes have to sing to ourselves as well as with others to get us through the hard times.”

“When the dust settles and all is revealed, the extent of the destruction is spectacular,” said The Wandering Hearts on “Not Misunderstood,” “The hurricane has raged behind closed doors. Nothing can stay hidden forever. Every lie comes to the surface eventually. It all catches up. You know that it's coming like watching a storm approach from the distance. Before you know it, it is right on top of you, crying and shouting down and demanding you answer. We wanted to recreate the looming threat of this storm in the music of ‘Not Misunderstood.’”

The British band are rare in their ability to enrapture audiences with enchanting harmonies and heartfelt songwriting, and often draw comparison to harmonic legends Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Their albums, "Wild Silence" (2018)  and “The Wandering Hearts” (2021) have received critical acclaim in the UK and charted #1 on the UK Americana Charts, as well as amassing over 16 millions streams in the UK & USA.

The Wandering Hearts are continuing their tour across continents, traveling through America, UK and Ireland. In September, the band will be part of the official Americana Fest showcase in Nashville, TN, with a UK acoustic set in the legendary Printer’s Alley included.
