The name came from a friend, at a time when we were struggling to come up with anything. I thought it was pretty cool at the time. We spent a few years together in the early 2000’s, and then split up. Too many late nights got the better of us. Then, when we got back together a couple of years ago we talked about having a new name, but we decided to stick with Gambling Hearts. We had a lot of fun the first time round, it felt wrong to turn our back on the name. We’re heavily influenced by bands like the Beatles, Neil Young, Oasis, Nirvana, Elliott Smith, Black Rebel…a shared love of angsty, indie/grunge rock has always been our thing. I love a good whinge to music.
