The Xcerts reveal single ‘Drive Me Wild’ from their newly released album, ‘Hold On To Your Heart’ — and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Shying away from contemporary influences and digging into the deep-rooted rich tapestry once weaved by Springsteen, Petty, Dylan, The Xcerts throw-back to more innocent times, where the boy gets the girl and lives happily ever after.
They yearn for a simpler, sweeter time, where life seemed less complicated and dreams were made for living. The Xcerts writes euphoric anthems about falling in love, capturing that magical moment that you brings you back to that first moment you first felt butterflies. As a hopeless romantic, the only music Murray Macleod will ever be able to write is going to come straight for the heart and aim straight for the gut.
‘Drive Me Wild’ – which is also a new addition to the Soccer AM: New Music playlist – follows album title track ‘Hold On To Your Heart‘ and ‘Feels Like Falling In Love‘, which was debuted on the Radio 1 Rock Show as its Rockest Record/track of the week and went onto go on the Kerrang!, Radio X and MTV Rocks playlists.
The band are to embark on their UK headline tour in support of their new album across February and March 2018.
