Burning Hearts return with a new EP entitled "Into The Wilderness." Four songs closely attached to nature and the quietness of the Finnish Östrobothnian landscape. They felt so inspired that they relocated their studio there to record these songs and the new album. The EP continues to showcase the band's intoxicating melody and captivatingly warm sound. Their manicured pop sensibilities and finely-tuned arrangements are highlighted throughout. Of course Jessika's beautiful vocals are always worth mentioning again and again. Luckily for us, the EP is just a taste of things to come as they continue preparation for their sophomore album on Shelflife.

For fans of: Le Futur Pompiste, Cats on Fire, Broadcast, The Magnetic Fields, Stereolab, Brittle Stars

Praise for Burning Hearts:

"...a dreamy slice of indie pop sure to inflame the hearts of the converted...lush sonic beauty."
- Pop Matters

"synthy, jangly songs that, while they do sound familiar, have a wintry sheen that's all their own."
- All Music

"This is the stuff we think about when we talk about wanting to hear good pop music."
- The Culture of Me

"I've never thought of Finland as a country that produces good music, ...but that may all change as Burning Hearts may be the band that places the virtual push pin on the Google map of Scandinavian music. Finland's indie pop scene may be largely untapped at the moment but thanks to bands like Burning Hearts, I'm sure twee fans are going to start taking notice."
- Panic Manual

"The duo behind Burning Hearts are Cats on Fire drummer and multi-instrumentalist Henry Ojala, and Le Futur Pompiste singer Jessika Rapo, - two key members from two brilliant bands. Jessika has definitely taken parts of the Le Futur Pompiste sound with her, and the Cats on Fire-sound may also be recognized, but at the same time, this is something very different than both of those bands."
- Eardrums

"Clever, creative and most important -- really beautiful to listen to."
