The duo perform dreamy synth-pop from acclaimed latest album Ecstatic Arrow with friends, including Deep Throat Choir and the hotly tipped Mich Cota.
Virginia Wing is Alice Merida Richards, whose languid voice has invited comparisons to Stereolab’s Lætitia Sadier and Broadcast’s Trish Keenan, with synth and sampler from Sam Pillay and Chris Duffin on saxophone.
Recorded in Switzerland, at the home of longtime collaborator Misha Hering, Virginia Wing’s third album unites solemn introspection with joy, layering resplendent avant-garde backdrops with biting lyrics delivered in Richards’ trademark vocals.
Virginia Wing make music that triangulates leftfield jazz, ashram-dwelling new age, and warm synth-pop into something that feels calm and centred
One of the year’s most original and exciting records
