SAT 13 APRIL | LA BELLE ANGELE
FESTIVAL TAKEOVER: KELBURN GARDEN PARTY
Mixing a wide range of influences to produce a left field, lo-fi and emotionally impactful musical view of the world as they see it, Edinburgh-based four-piece Earth Wire create genre-defying music in attempt to capture the ephemeral through sound and lyric.
Rising from a multitude of different creative backgrounds and a history of working together in various incarnations, Earth Wire started as Delighted Peoples, a duo of loop-pedalists based on soulful vocals and electric guitar. Through a mutual appreciation and affinity of ideas they were joined by a rapper and producer and as Earth Wire they began crafting a unique sound.
Over a short period of time they have already made a mark on their local scene, securing support slots for internationally-esteemed acts such as Homeboy Sandman, Abdominal, The Mouse Outfit, Law Holt and Strangelove; played well-received sets at festivals such as BBC at the Edinburgh Fringe, Kelburn Garden Party, Hidden Door, Carnival 56 and Audio Soup; and headlining locally-established nights by Limbo, Rally and Broad and Nu Fire. They have also been nominated for Best Hip Hop Act at The Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2016.
Earth Wire have self-produced and self-released a debut single and video for their song ‘In Heaven’. They will be releasing their second EP in Summer 2019.
