Wonder Villains are brother and sister Kieran and Eimear Coyle, Cheylene Murphy and Ryan McGroarty. From Derry they make blistering ‘anti-pop’ not entirely dissimilar in spirit from that legendary Derry band the Undertones.
They smash through two minute pop songs while cranking the distortion on their homemade keyboard sounds. Their singles have received plays nationally on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, XFM, RTE 2FM and Today FM etc.
Previous radio support also came in the form of a Maida Vale Huw Stephens session on BBC Radio 1, Introducing playlist, plus a ‘Next Hype’ and ’Brand New Sound’ (on previous single ‘Blonde‘).
The band have just come off tour with They Might Be Giants and are confirmed for SXSW 2014 in Austin, TX.
Their debut album ‘Rocky’ is set for June 23rd release.
