Mild West (EP Launch)
Since forming in 2017 off the back of a home recording project, Mild West has grown from a traditional alt-rock group into a baroque synth orchestra that delivers dense sonic palettes over energetic beats. The band released their debut EP 'Howler' shortly after their first run of shows, and continued to develop their live performance into drawn out pseudo-medlys of their studio works. This soon led to the band picking up slots at Port Macquarie's Festival of the Sun through Triple J Unearthed, and Byron Bay Falls Festival by the end of their first year together.
The group has since added a live cellist and a second synth player to expand their sonic horizons and explore interesting combinations of neo-classical, psychedelic, and indie rock music. Mild West's second EP 'Only Sleep' puts these genre diverse elements on display, and explores themes of the gradual decay of childhood innocence. The band is constantly searching for new ways to develop their sound, and looks to consistently evolve as they work on new material.
