TUNE Virginia Wing - Be Released
Virginia Wing presents new single ‘Be Released’ via Fire Records on 14th September, taken from current album ‘Ecstatic Arrow’ (out now).
Virginia Wing is the musical collaborations of Alice Merida Richards and Sam Pillay, formed in 2012, currently based in Manchester. Acutely aware of the misguided perceptions when operating within the paradigm of a male-female electronic duo, their music is a sprawling amalgamation of experimental pop songs with texture, depth and nuance; that’s daring, progressive and forever bold.
After two stunning albums, their latest release, the politically charged ‘Ecstatic Arrow’ reminds us “of the astonishing things you can do with pop music.” (The Quietus).
Virginia Wing will tour in August: Sea Change Festival Devon (25th) October: Oslo London (11th), Nice N’ Sleazy Glasgow (12th), New Now Wave Manchester (13th).
