Reliably informed

I’m starting to get really envious of those types who are able to take a terrible situation and spin some gold out of it. All I feel like I’ve done for the past six months is nap and binge bad TV shows.

The folks behind Wagtail are definitely the former: they’ve taken their experiences during lockdown and funnelled it into a new venture. Featuring members from local legends Roxy Girls, No Teeth, and SMUJ, the quartet came up with the imaginatively titled debut release Nine Songs. The record consists of (you guessed it) nine songs, all of which were written and recorded at home. But these aren’t your run-of-the-mill angsty songs about being stuck in the house 24/7; instead this group decided that if they couldn’t get out more, they’d bring new realms via experimental musical soundscapes. Fancy gunslinging your way through the Wild West? Or maybe dystopian futuristic space travel? Whatever your mood, you’ve now got nine traversive songs to take you somewhere decidedly more interesting and adventurous.

Wagtail release Nine Songs on 6th November
