Wild Hope are recording with top producer Gavin Monaghan (The Editors, The Kings Of Leon, Robert Plant ..) and are releasing the first track in June 2011 called Money And Gold with others to follow. BBC Introducing has already spotlighted Money And Gold as a single of the week. Painters Radio Show had the demo of it in its TOP 5 of 2010.
Wild Hope have supported Tiffany Page, Drugstore, Cloud Control & Cherry Ghost amongst others and garnered the following reviews:
"David Zovko’s vocals are both distinctive without becoming grating, and the catchy guitar riffs and melodies work to produce the kind of ear-friendly pop rock that will easily appeal to the masses. A sense of real feeling and maturity comes through with each song, suggesting that these guys are in this for the love of music, rather than a desperate search for fame and recognition, which is really refreshing, and works to make them even more worthy of fame and recognition."
"There seems to be a lot of great bands coming out of Cambridge nowadays (Violet Bones, Ghostlight, Isaac’s Aircraft – to only name a few) and Wild Hope are one of them."
"they have both a powerful live sound and some memorable songs …. and Ben Henricksen's abrasive electric guitar playing, which reminds me slightly of Bernard Butler in his Suede days" Sound On Sound magazine
"Highlights for me were the bonus live tracks, with some nice slide sounds and thoughtful plucking over lovely, dreamy soundscapes, and not a rock cliché in sight." Chris Marlings - Repeat Fanzine
"The final band of the evening respectively refused to be overshadowed by the popularity of previous band Queen and Two Jacks, and performed under the moniker Wild Hope. Although the most senior on a bill of questionably young bands, Wild Hope showed their undoubted ability to hold the attention of a crowd left dizzy from the previous performance, and change the venue's atmosphere accordingly.
The four piece play southern tinged rock songs with the rhythm persistently kept by the female drummer; a nice change of affairs in a predominantly male led competition. The vocalist is strong and often soars above the wash created by the whammied guitar riffs and fleeting bass lines, which left no stone on the fret board unturned. Wild Hope proved to be the only band on the bill whose performance was not tainted by an out of time member, and were the tightest and most consistent of the night." by Shane Alsop - BBC Radio Cambridgeshire
