Trio Wildwood Kin set to release debut album & announce UK wide tour

June 15, 2017

Having recently signed to the newly re-launched Sony imprint Silvertone, acclaimed indie alt folk band Wildwood Kin will release their much-anticipated debut album ‘Turning Tides’ August 18th. 
Wildwood Kin, a family trio formed in Exeter, borrow heavily from early folk influences, but their extraordinary debut album delves deeply in to other genres, featuring both electric and acoustic instruments. It boasts inventive sonics and spectral atmospherics alongside their sublime three-part harmonies.

Guitarist Emillie Key, her bouzouki/keyboard-playing sister Beth and their drumming cousin Meghann Loney all sing, swapping leads on original songs, and joining forces on harmonies that have become their trademark, inviting comparisons with the likes of Crosby, Stills and Nash and Fleetwood Mac.
“Making the album was a huge learning process,” says Emillie. “We had no idea what we were capable of and we constantly surprised ourselves. We went in to the studio not knowing where the boundaries were and discovered that, of course, there aren’t any. That’s what we found most exciting.”
‘Run’ is the anthemic and uplifting first single (impacting June 30th). With other highlights including the mesmerising opening track ‘The Author’, the hypnotic ‘Steady My Heart’, ‘Warrior Daughter’s’ driving drums, the sombre electronic ‘Dove’ and the rousing ‘Taking A Hold’, alongside the shape-shifting dreamy pop of the title track.
Being tipped by the likes of Jo Whiley, Mark Radcliffe, Steve Wright, Bob Harris and Jamie Cullum and having previously toured with Seth Lakeman and Ward Thomas, the band play several UK headline shows this autumn.
Before that the girls will play three shows at The Islington as part of a monthly residency alongside a huge festival line-up this summer, which includes both the Glastonbury Avalon and BBC Introducing Stages, plus BBC Radio 2’s ‘Festival In A Day’ in Hyde Park.
