Virginia Wing is the musical collaboration of Alice Merida Richards and Sam Pillay, formed in 2012 and currently based in Manchester.
Acutely aware of the misguided perceptions when operating within the paradigm of a male-female electronic duo, their music is a sprawling amalgamation of experimental pop songs with texture, depth and nuance; that’s daring, progressive and forever bold.
After two stunning albums, they return with politically charged new album ‘Ecstatic Arrow’ that reminds us “of the astonishing things you can do with pop music” (The Quietus).
Virginia Wing’s ‘Ecstatic Arrow’ is out now on Fire Records.
