Wonder Villains are brother and sister Kieran and Eimear Coyle, Cheylene Murphy and Ryan McGroarty. From Derry - the UK Capital of Culture 2013 - they make blistering anti-pop, not entirely dissimilar in spirit from that legendary Derry band…the Undertones
(Incidentally drummer Kieran played the Undertones drummer in the new movie about the Belfast record label Good Vibrations - due for release in March 2013)
The band have played America, Morocco, toured the UK and supported the likes of New Young Pony Club, Castiotone For The Painfully Alone and The Undertones amongst others, as well as playing on the Introducing stage at Radio 1’s One Big Weekend
They smash through two minute pop songs while cranking the distortion on their homemade keyboard sounds and their first three singles Zola, Ferrari and TV received plays nationally on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, XFM, Q, Absolute Radio. Radio 1 support also came in the form of a Maida Vale Huw Stephens session and a BBC Radio 1 Introducing playlist.
The band’s debut album ‘Rocky’ will be out in early summer.
