Dedicated New Music Blog
Wonder Villains are brother and sister Kieran and Eimear Coyle, Cheylene Murphy and Ryan McGroarty. From Derry (the UK Capital of Culture 2013) they make blistering anti-pop, not entirely dissimilar in spirit from that legendary Derry band the Undertones (Incidentally drummer Kieran played the Undertones drummer in the new movie about the Belfast record label Good Vibrations).
They smash through two-minute pop songs while cranking the distortion on their homemade keyboard sounds and their first three singles ‘Zola’, ‘Ferrari’ and ‘TV’ received plays nationally on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, XFM, Q, Absolute Radio.
No surprise given that current single ‘Blonde’ is the catchy musical accompaniment to wishing the sun would arrive so you can get on with sitting in a public park, or whiling away your free time in a beer garden with a refreshing drink of your choosing. Have a listen.
