• Winner of Best Festival for Emerging Talent at UK Festival Awards

  • Wylderness

    Woozy sun-drenched pop wrapped in a wall of stabbing fuzzy guitars and mesmerising shoegaze, echoing the sounds of Ride, DIIV, Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo.

    Wylderness’ eponymous debut album, released in 2018, was championed by Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) and was part of Radio 1’s Best of BBC Music Introducing. It garnered critical acclaim from Clash, DIY and Drowned in Sound, with the song On a Dais being featured on the US version of the TV show Shameless. Wylderness have played shows for Huw Stephens, Sonic Cathedral, Swn Festival and support with Acid Mothers Temple.

    The Cardiff band’s second album, Big Plans for a Blue World (2022), was recorded with an expanded line up and featured added layers of vintage synths and clarinet. It placed no.28 in Far Out Magazine’s Best Albums of 2022 and charted in the North American College & Community Radio Chart.

    2024 will see the release of their much anticipated new Safe Mode EP recorded with producers Andrew Sanders and long time collaborator Rory Attwell.

    Wylderness are Marz (guitars/vox), Chet (bass/guitars), Phil (drums/percussion), Don (guitars/vox), and Hirwaun (clarinet/keys).
