After growing up together but only forming last year, The Hearts are Alex Nash, Hamish Kay and Jamie Roberts.
Produced by legendary producer Catherine Marks (Foals, PJ Harvey, The Killers), ‘Just Kids’ is the new single from the Newport 3-piece. Watch their heartwarming homemade video below.
Echoing the Killers and Editors, 'Just Kids' is a huge, elegant indie anthem, complete with driving synths, indelible lyrics and an upbeat and melodic chorus. The video, which was filmed by the band themselves, shows two older men reliving their youth and is the perfect accompaniment to the track. 'Just Kids' is available to download now from iTunes.
The band’s last single 'Run Free' built up over 400k plays on Spotify, entering the global viral top ten charts, and gained huge support from Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1, where it was added to the daytime BBC Introducing playlist.
XFM have also championed the band from the beginning including them as a 'Tip for 2015' and following this with a daytime playlist for their debut single 'Lips'.
The Hearts have grown quite a local following in Wales and have further achieved a widespread loyal fanbase with support slots for the likes of Paul Weller, Arcade Fire and Darlia along with their own sold out tour. Further tour dates will be announced soon.
