Biography

Wyland is not just an alternative rock band from New Jersey. They’re more than its novel fusion of electronic and acoustic influences, and its young and driven members.

Wyland is a question, a narrative, a journey.

This journey began in early 2013, when lead singer Ryan Sloan and pianist Pablo Techera, who had been in and out of several bands during their highschool years, decided to collaborate on something new. It wasn’t long before they realised that what they had just begun was going to become part of a much larger story. Helped by Craigslist, coincidences, and something which felt a little bit like fate, the pair set out to complete the fragments of an idea, and found along the way guitarist Mauricio Salazar, bassist Kara Delonas, and drummer Matt Pana. Despite the different members’ diverse backgrounds, they were united by a common dream: do what you love, share what you love, never let your feet touch the ground. It was this ethos which inspired both the band’s name, and its music. Wyland, a small-town band with a big-town dream, had just been born.

It’s the careful collision of influences which make Wyland’s sound what it is: a subtle blend of warm, atmospheric depth, arranged within an upbeat pop format. It’s music which both acknowledges, and builds on the past; mixing the heartfelt lyrics and stand-out vocals of the people that kickstarted their musical journey- the earlier U2 albums and The Police, with ambiental and acoustic beats inspired by artists such as M85 and Jon Hopkins.
