Prairie WWWW is an experimental folk band formed in Taipei, Taiwan in 2010. Its music combines poetry, folk, ambient and tribal elements. The band seeks inspiration from the might of nature, and with a mixture of sounds and visual arts in their performances, they manage to bring forward to their audiences the experience of their unique soundscape visually and aurally.
The four Ws in Prairie’s band name are not to be pronounced, serving as a pictogram for a waveform, as well as the imagery of the grass that blowing in the wind.
Prairie WWWW has been performing with various overseas band such as Blue Hawaii (CA) in 2014, Battles (US) in 2015, My Disco (AUS) and Phew (JP) in 2016. In 2016, Prairie WWWW is invited by Japanese record label Guruguru Brain to issue their first vinyl record Wu-Hai EP. Moreover, it is invited to attend “2016 Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia”, UK. In 2017, Prairie WWWW has attended Primavera Pro Showcase Festival in Barcelona, Spain and Fuji Rock Festival in Japan in July. The band is now preparing their fifth album which is expected to release in late 2018.
