We’re back with Dinked 79, the new album from the Manchester-based experimental pop outfit Virginia Wing. private LIFE is released on February 12th by Fire Records.
Over the last few years, Virginia Wing have provided us with some of the most interesting and forward-thinking pop to come out of the UK, and this work could be their most fully realised yet. Inspired by the band members’ individual struggles with mental health, private LIFE explores the world behind closed doors, shining a light on the causes of society’s problems with anxiety and stress, and creating dark anthems in the process. Virginia Wing’s trademark bombastic experimental production is out in full force, combining 90s R&B with Yellow Magic Orchestra synths and a the skittish rhythms of Talking Heads. Fans of tUnE-yArDs, Sylvan Esso and Animal Collective will find much to love here!
