Mild West w/ The Ruiins // The Kilbeys
Part psychedelic, part baroque, and often drowned in synthesizers – MILD WEST has developed a distinctive musical aesthetic that ranges between upbeat pop and cinematic instrumentals.
Since first forming in 2017 as a three piece the group released their debut EP Howler shortly after their first run of shows, and continued to develop their live performance into drawn out pseudo-medleys of their studio works. This soon led to the band picking up slots at Port Macquarie's Festival of the Sun through Triple J Unearthed, Byron Bay Falls Festival and Grow Your Own Music Festival by the end of their first year together playing alongside bands such as Fleet Foxes and Glass Animals on these Festival Line-ups.
The group has since seen the addition of cello and a further multi-instrumentalist to expand their sonic horizons. Their second EP Only Sleep puts these genre diverse elements on display. The band is currently in the final stages of producing their first full length album set to be released in 2021, which makes full use of their colourful wall of sound and showcases their most refined song writing to date. With huge runs of shows and big releases planned for 2021 MILD WEST will have to be on your radar.
