When Northumberland-based WVCKO began recording Bilde back in the halcyon days of 2019, he set out to create music that would allow him to “feel total escapism and tranquillity” at a time when the world around him seemed to offer him anything but. Little did he know that he’d be creating the essential antidote to 2020 in the process, because Bilde is one hell of a cathartic experience given the current inescapable madness of the here and now.

From the calm atmospheres of Distant Voices and Palma, through to the frenetic grooves of Joint and Bloc, there’s a broad array of sounds and styles on offer, but Bilde never fails to be consistent and refreshing. A superb debut.
