Freitag, 22. Juni 2018

Alcuna Wilds is a British/Dutch band based in the Netherlands. The band creates atmospheric trip-rock music, combining ambient soundscapes, driving beats and strong melodic riffs, with rich, melancholic vocals and astute, considered lyrics. Formed of members from both sides of the North Sea, their diverse influences contribute to their distinctive sound. Alcuna Wilds' second EP, 'Murmuration Season' was released in October 2016. A new single ‘Fingertips’ was released in September 2017, reaching number 6 in the Dutch ‘Free 40’ Indie Chart and will be followed by two new singles in the Spring.

Alcuna Wilds have chalked up over 70 shows throughout the Netherlands, UK, Germany and Belgium. These have included shows at some of the Netherlands’ top music venues, such as AFAS Live (Amsterdam), Sugarfactory (Amsterdam), Patronaat (Haarlem), Ekko (Utrecht) and Hedon (Zwolle), and at festivals such as Greenbelt Festival (UK), Stroud Fringe Festival (UK), the Bevrijdingsfestival Amsterdam (Liberation Day Festival), State-X New Forms (The Hague), and Surfana Festival (Bloemendaal). The band have supported national and international acts, such as Sigur Ros (IS), Thought Forms (UK), Dralms (CA), Gallops (UK), Sea Change (NO), Tears & Marble (NL) and Throws (UK). The band performed across the Netherlands throughout the Autumn, as part of the national, handpicked ‘Popronde’ tour, promoting upcoming talent.
