Ahead of the release of their new EP Honestly, I'm Just Thinking, we had a chat with The Young Hearts' Craig Lawrence to talk about the EP, touring and living without music or the internet....

Honestly I'm Just thinking is released this week. Are you looking forward to people hearing it?

Like you wouldn't believe. This record is something we have worked incredibly hard on, and we are so proud of. The response we've had from our close friends and family has been really positive, so we're excited to see the reaction it gets from everyone else, and where these songs can take us.

It's been over a year between the recording and release of the EP, has this made you look back and reflect on what you would have liked to have changed on the record?

Honestly, no. This record captures a moment in time for this band, and it means a lot to us on a personal level. We spent a long time making these songs the best we could, and yeah they may have their imperfections, but they're part of it now.

As a band, you've gone through a lot of hard times, has this influenced the EP in any way?

Of course, the best way for me to write is honestly and from personal experience. Yeah, we've had a lot of ups and downs, but then everyone does at some point in life, and that's why I hope people can hear this record and relate to these songs on some level.

Do you have a favourite track on the EP?

I think I'd have to go with 'Bloom'. It's the song I enjoy playing live the most, plus it took the longest to write so when we finally got it sounding the way we wanted, it really felt like an achievement. The instrumental end to the song is also an important factor as well. Listening back to it for the first time really made me realise how far we'd come with this EP.
