Virginia Wing
private LIFE

Anxiety, stress, death, emotion - mental trauma is something a lot of us have had to deal with in this most horrible of years (for posterity's sake, we're writing this in 2020). The members of Virginia Wing have used suffering as a platform from which to make a brash and daring pop record. We all need an album that is somewhat life-affirming in these dark times, and as such 'private LIFE' may provide therapy for both the protagonists and the listener. The band have really moved their sound on in recent years - they make a sort of artsy, icy take on synth-pop now - so if anyone is going to achieve this it might well be them.

Virginia Wing

Probably one of the better Record Store Day releases this year, ace London quartet Virginia Wing tease you a couple of new tracks from what will be their brand new record in due course. If it's anything like the last one it will appeal to fans of Broadcast, Stereolab and fans of all things kraut and pop.  

Jane Weaver and Virginia Wing / Death And Vanilla / Noveller
Lost Library

The return of Fire records "Lost Library" series is a stormer with Jane Weaver singing atop Virginia Wing on a Suzanne Menzel song, Noveller tackling John Carpenter's 'The Thing' and Death and Vanilla re-imagine Bert Jansch's “Moonshine”. All showcase the female fronted bands on Fire's roster. So even better right?

Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collaboration with XAM Duo was excellent so we have high hopes for this.  

Virginia Wing / XAM Duo
Tomorrow’s Gift

London indie band Virginia Wing and electronic experimentalists XAM Duo, who are comprised from members of Hookworms and Deadwall, got together in Bradford on freezing January day and did a little bit of improvising. Tomorrow’s Gift is the exciting, tweaked and refined result of those sessions.

Measures Of Joy

South London four piece Virginia Wing's debut album promises some slinky and dream-like electronic pop which owes debts to early Krautrock, revered Brum legends Broadcast and the Radiophonic pioneers of wibbly otherworldly electronics. Also see the trance-like post-punk rhythmic drive of, say, This Heat. 'Measures of Joy' is certainly a hazy montage of moody electronics, dreamily sung and sometimes spoken vocals, with subtle musique concrete influences. Indespensible, one of the best 43 minutes of the year. Proper full review to follow shortly but this crystalline beauty could creep onto a couple of end-of-year lists.

Virginia Wing
Forward Constant Motion

Virginia Wing’s second LP ‘Forward Constant Motion’ sees the band deviate towards a more expansive, focused sound but still retains some of the cosmic darkness of debut LP ‘Measures of Joy’. Still showing signs of a propensity for dreamlike, otherworldly themes, this record melds a successful hybrid of the sleepy new age of Laurie Anderson and Homework-era Daft Punk, resulting in a bold and imaginative contemporary pop record. Includes a digital download card.
