Biography

Leeds, United Kingdom (2008 – present)

Wonderswan was conceived early in 2008 in a dark, damp basement in Leeds, UK and incubated in a warm pouch by the radiant glow of a shared love for scuzzy 90s lo-fi slacker bands. The first demo recordings were put together as the untitled “Bear” CDR and given out for free to audiences and friends.

Within a very short time the young Wonderswan had played with bands including Times New Viking, No Age, Copy Haho and Lovvers to name just a few, toured the UK with Copy Haho, supported Sky Larkin on a UK tour and played the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds festivals in 2009. In May 2009 “Hey Nature” was featured as the opening track of the Dance To The Radio 4x12” compilation series, introducing the band to a wider audience. The first Wonderswan single, “Furrrpile” was released as a limited edition 7” in October 2009.

The band took some time out to write and record new material over last Autumn and Winter, recording everything in various rooms of their homes using 4-track tape recorders, a trusty laptop and a hoarded collection of microphones. The first collection of new songs is released as the cassette tape E.P “I WISH I WAS DEEP INSTEAD OF JUST MACHO” on Sea Owl records on May 24th. Drowned In Sound say “scuzzy guitar-pop success”
