The Goldhearts formed on the Gold Coast in early 2015, with debut live shows on the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sydney. The project began when Indie music survivor/songwriter Margy Joughin moved from Brisbane to the Gold Coast. Stepping away from her usual duties on bass and backing vox, she cooked up a solo project and worked with acclaimed Australian producer Govinda Doyle (Angus and Julia Stone – Big Jet Plane). Together they created an engaging album of tunes equal parts indie pop grunge alt-country twang.
The A&R Department Sydney team (responsible for Harts), jumped on board and supported the release of the quirky alt-country pop swagger “On the Run” in April 2015. The tune earnt the band reviews in global blogs referencing the Kills, PJ Harvey and Nirvana.
“On the Run” was included on The A&R Department compilation released to radio in the USA in September 2015. On 14 October 2015 “On the Run” reached a high of number 20 in the FMQB Alternative Specialty charts (Sub modern) is receiving weekly airplay from the legendary KROQ DJ Rodney on the ROQ on his show and the KROQ request list where it still remains. Other USA airplay includes KFMA Tucson Arizona, WRIF Detroit, Portland Radio, WLKK Buffalo NY, CMU Michigan, WRMR Jacksonville and WSUM college radio.
“On the Run” received airplay on Australian community radio - added to SYN playlist (Melbourne) & recommended for AMRAP distro, regular spins on Inner FM, FBI, 4ZZZ, 3D Radio, Radio Adelaide and others across the country.

“From Australia The Goldhearts “On the Run” – all you have to do is listen to it once and it will keep you awake, listen for it on my show this Sunday night” Rodney on the Roq (KROQ Los Angeles)
“The Goldhearts play indie music hot and greasy guitars clearly nostalgic from the grunge period led by Sub Pop Records: Nirvana. Australians also claim a certain American musical heritage with the very country sounds of "On The Run". It also denotes similarities with The Kills, British in reverb and the importance of the female voice." My Band News (France)
"The Goldhearts newly released single, On the Run, is a relaxed yet rockin’ song to be played among your list of fav twang-tinged independent band sounds – or the perfect instrumental intro to a Gold Coast crime television series". Blank Magazine (Gold Coast, Australia)
