Bio

Hailing from the NSW coast, Mild West are a three piece alt-rock group who traverse synthesised psychedelic soundscapes. Having formed in 2017, the band quickly established themselves and took their unique sound on tour with long time pals Los Scallywaggs throughout the middle of the year.

Soon after the completion of their first run of shows Mild West released their self-produced debut EP, Howler, a 22 minute near continuous piece of music that toes the line between alternative rock and moody psychedelia.

This band sounding really different to a lot of others going around rn. Some drama here, it works.

Really nicely put together tune here. It's got an electric centre to it.

major throwback to alt rock/pop of the mid-late 00s. decidedly moody and cinematic the way a track like this ought to be. interested to hear where you take this sound next.
