'Sparkling shoegaze-pop with a hop and a skip'
“A mesmerizing combination that warps time and will have you reaching to hit replay instantly”
*Pigeons & Planes*
Blending hazy shoegaze with gossamer synth-pop, Wyldest have been creating their own self-sufficient story since they appeared with early demos in 2015, immediately picking-up support from The Telegraph, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit and NME, comparisons with the likes of Warpaint and Grimes to Blonde Redhead and Chairlift and winning a slot at Green Man Festival.
From writing and recording in their Greenwich studio, to designing their own artwork and producing videos, the London trio - fronted by songwriter and producer Zoe Mead, with Mariin Kallikorm on bass and guitar and drums from Jack Gooderham - do things their own way, as they explained in interviews with The Independent and Clash, the latter tipping the band with a Next Wave feature.
Their 2017 Hitchhiker EP served as a real statement of intent from the incredibly creative outfit, enjoying glowing reviews from the likes of EARMILK and Indie Shuffle and Radio 1 play from long-time supporter Huw Stephens and 6 Music, leading to further live dates, including packed-out hometown shows, a House Of Vans headline, support slots with the likes of Martha Ffion and HalfNoise and a triumphant string of showcases at 2018’s SXSW and The Great Escape festivals.
The band’s debut album is finished, with single 1 and shows across the UK kicking off in October 2018.
