Introducing: Wild Front

Prepare to be hooked on some New Wave Indie Pop courtesy of a promising Southampton four-piece. Here are Hampshire heroes Wild Front.

Who?

Joe Connell – Lead Guitar
Josh Betteridge – Drums
Jack Williams – Vocals
Mike Flowers – Bass

The Sound

All members of Wild Front are big into Alternative Indie and 80’s Rock but their individual influences range from everything including Hip-Hop and Folk. This melting pot of interests and influences sparks creativity and makes for a beautifully original sound.

It’s dreamy Indie Pop that the BBC request you “Imagine Alt J, The Temper Trap and The 1975 having musical babies and you’re starting to get somewhere close” 

The Story

The four lads had been friends for years before they decided to mash their musical talents together and see what bloomed. Unsurprisingly the result has been a fantastic, fresh new band who bring their friendship and fun collaborative energy to every live performance.

Wild Front have already played in front of huge crowds. They had a busy festival season rocking Bestival and Isle of Wight among others and they even played the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury.

Essential Tracks

I think we can all agree that “Physics” (played at Glastonbury above) is a big tune but Wild Front have a lot more where that came from. Check out “Rico” …

… and brand new single “Southside”

Where can I see them live?

The band just played a storming set at the TicketWeb showcase at The Great Escape’s First Fifty festival. The lads are coming to Ireland to play a show at Monroe’s Galway this month, grab tickets to this show here: ticketweb.ie/wildfront
