Indie/Alternative-pop band Long Lost are streaming a brand new track ‘Wild Hearts’ over at Rocksound.tv where they have been made Band Of The Week. Wild Hearts is about as upbeat and hooky as they come; the perfect soundtrack to a summers evening. Don’t be fooled by the lighthearted nature of the music though… the subject matter of Wild Hearts has much darker undertones.
Speaking of the track, singer Joe Boynton says:
“Wild Hearts is a concept/story song about a young boy from a nowhere town. After years of living with an abusive farther the boy decides to shoot his old man in the back while driving with him out to the desert. The lyrics to the song are the actual thoughts running through the boys mind as he prepares to do the unthinkable.”

What began as an acoustic side project of Transit vocalist Joe Boynton in 2010 has lead to a full-time band over the course of the last year. Long Lost signed with No Sleep Records in late 2012 and entered the studio with co-producer Gary Cioffi, Jr. (Transit, Misser) in early 2013 to record their first full-length with drummer Aviv Marotz, guitarist Mat Morin and Bassist Mike Moschetto in tow.
It was there where Long Lost created ‘Save Yourself, Start Again’ – a bright and airy collection of ten beautiful indie-pop tunes that exhibit a range of styles and moods, from upbeat power-pop to solemn folk, which any fans of bands like Death Cab For Cutie, Circa Survive, Maps & Atlases and Rilo Kiley will undoubtedly adore.
