Wild Promises have been described as a ‘stop-you-in-your-tracks’ kind of band, and this becomes apparent when you see and hear their soaring choruses and delicate musicianship in the flesh.
Under the watchful eye of Producer Karl Odlum, the band have created a set of songs that wears its heart on its sleeve, and offers a window into their own ideal dream-pop world which is almost completed after sessions in the legendary Grouse Lodge studios
