SCOTT WILLIAMSON & THE WILD CARDS + EMMA LANGFORD
^ Upstairs ^
After the release of their much-praised (BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music, RTÉ Radio) debut single ‘After Eve’in 2017 and UK and Ireland dates including a main stage slot at Beautiful Days Festival alongside The Levellers & The Waterboys
, Warsaw Radio return with their debut album ‘Midnight Broadcast’ in March 2018.
Warsaw Radio’s enveloping poetic lyrics are backed up by musical talent of equaling strength, the anthem-like build of strings and percussion have led to comparisons, from BBC Radio 6 & Hot Press Magazine, to the sound of early Arcade Fire.
Production on ‘Midnight Broadcast’ comes from Brighton producer Jag Jago (The Maccabees & Florence Welch).
Support on the night comes from Cork man Tiz McNamara whose independent releases have racked up over 2 Million Spotify Plays, features in UK TV shows and gained huge support from BBC Radio 2, and Amazing Radio. Tiz also recently supported BRITS ‘Critics Choice Winner’ James Bay.
Warsaw Radio reviews:
“One of those bands that you discover and you wish you’d known them longer” – Chris Hawkins, BBC 6 Music
“Powerful & passionate” – Hot Press Magazine
“This is the definition of quality music and songwriting” – Music News Today UK
“Rich vocals and sublime strings” – BBC Introducing
