Bio

With members hailing from different corners of Australia and the world, Wild Meadows came together over a love of all things garage, shoegaze and noise-pop. Originally formed by James Ross (vocals/guitar) and Donovan Pill (bass), the band independently released its first EP in 2015. An explorative and confident debut, the EP received considerable radio play across the likes of Triple R FM. That year saw the band perform extensively throughout Melbourne, including a residency at The Tote, numerous headline shows and support slots with acts including Even and The Bo Weevils.

Following a change of lineup in mid-2016, Wild Meadows set about writing material for a full-length album. The addition of Jessica Lawrence (vocals), Dylan Bird (guitar) and Simon Gemmill (drums) saw the band take on a slightly more psych-rock infused sound, while still remaining true to the jangly noise-pop of its origins. After honing these new tracks at numerous headline shows the band engaged the services of Paul ‘Woody’ Annison to record, mix and produce the LP. The result is an exhilarating eight-tracker that achieves an impressive balance of dark, roaring crescendos with gentle, hazy ballads. Wild Meadows are excited to share this new album with the world.
