“The debut single from this Essex four piece resembles a cosmic take on Foals’ tort art rock, psychedelic swirls framing a mammoth chorus hook” – Q Magazine (September 2011)
Essex of late has become synonymous nationally with TV shows exposing feeding time at the zoo. The band Wild Combination, a trio comprising of Daniel Williams (guitar), Christian Wright (keys and vocals) and Terry Clark (Drums and vocals), also hail from Essex. However, they prefer to think of Underworld, The Prodigy, Depeche Mode and Squarepusher as examples of the good that can come from this county.
Wild Combination, who have already received early radio support from Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and a mention in Q Magazine’s Q50, have only recently decided to share their music outside of their Essex borders.
Taking inspiration from bands such as Talking Heads, the band has created their debut single ‘We Are The Creatures’. This track echoes the sounds of Postal Service, Phoenix and Foals with its jumpy electronic accompaniment and pop sensibility. It is a dance tune that has the sound of a band living inside it. The video sees a slightly Jekyll and Hyde maddened Christian (the person not the religion) singing to you before the night does indeed turn them into neon tinted creatures: http://youtu.be/azCfYnZaIho
With their own studio in the countryside, Wild Combination have had time to develop their home grown sound. Wielding a true DIY aesthetic, the band have created their own Essex club night called ‘High Off The Dancehalls’ to keep them entertained and they even have CDs in hand crafted cases to offer their fans after their gigs.
To support the release of ‘We Are The Creatures’, Wild Combination are also giving away a free track called ‘The Love You Give is Worth more Than Gold’ via their Facebook page.
