Bands to Watch #244: Wildeflower

I’m not sure what’s in the water lately, but there’s definitely an increase of ‘60s-influenced bands. Just this week I had the pleasure of reviewing Weird Sounds’ debut album, ‘Choreography,’ which could pass as a lost Beach Boys album; now we’ve been introduced to Surrey six-piece who have obviously been dusting off their Beatles records.

Led by frontman Max Kinghorn-Mills, Wildeflower are releasing their debut single today via a new UK label Stella Mortos. Entitled ‘Good Girl’, the song is rife with Beatles-esque three-part harmonies that makes for perfect listening on a spring morning.

If I had to compare them to a band of recent time then the pianos and vocals are extremely similar to some of the slower Grizzly Bear tracks. Think close to ‘Ready, Able’ from their 2009 album ‘Veckatimest’.

Wildeflower may spend their time recording in bedrooms and in the countryside, (‘Good Girl’ ends with some beautiful rain sounds), but the band are performing live at the Fire Station in Windsor to celebrate their single release; an acoustic show that looks to be well worth the ticket price.

Wildeflower’s single ‘Good Girl’ is out today (14 May) and is available in extremely limited edition (limited to 250 copies) 7″ vinyl.
