Live Review: The Wandering Hearts @ Coffee House Sessions – 8.11.2017

By 14th November 2017 Review No Comments

The Wandering Hearts, London’s rapidly-rising country-pop four piece, really do bring a new dynamic to their music in a live setting. The sound is stripped back, but not to the point of being dull. Tim provides a stomping pulse on his little kick drum while his rhythmic guitar gallops along, and the chime of Chess’ mandolin is sparse but effective.

The vocal harmonies which define the band’s signature sound are lush as ever. They rise and fall with the songs, building slowly before dropping away softly. The whole thing is very intimate, and the cottony vocals in particular feel like a cushion around your head, even in the noisy cafeteria where they performed their short-but-sweet set.

The country-pop genre may be full of sound-alikes, but the Wandering Hearts certainly bring something new to the table.
