THE YOUNG HEARTS RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘TAKE A RIDE’ ON YEAR OF THE RAT RECORDS
‘Take A Ride’ is the realisation that it’s ok to let loose once in a while, whatever age you are, and whatever situation you find yourself in. Life has a habit of weighing you down, and sometimes the only way to shake it off is to go out and experience those completely wild and spontaneous nights.
Speaking about ‘Take A Ride’, singer Craig Lawrence says - “It’s easy to get caught up in the more mundane aspects of life, going to work, paying bills, and generally just trying to get by as an adult in this day and age. The older you get, the more those responsibilities take over, and the harder it is to break the cycle every now and then. It’s no secret to the people close to me that I like a drink. I’m not going to pretend that it’s the best way of dealing with everyday life, but for me it’s a means of escape every once in a while. ‘Take A Ride’ stems from a train journey home after a particular night out in London. I’d had no sleep, was wearing the same clothes from the night before, sunglasses on, head down. I felt like death, and it was easy to be hard on myself in that state, but after a while, you come to realise it’s the nights like this that allow us to forget about the pressures of day to day life, and re-capture our youth in some way”
