UK group Virginia Wing announce first North American tour


UK group Virginia Wing, the duo of Alice Merida Richards and Sam Pillay, have been making icy, krautrock-influenced synthpop for most of this decade. Their debut album, Measures of Joy, made our Best of 2014 list and last year they released their third album, Ecstatic Arrow, which found them defrosting their sound just a bit, adding saxophones and other human touches for their best record to date. You can listen to Ecstatic Arrow below.

Virginia Wing will be heading to Pickathon in August and will tour around that appearance, mostly on the West Coast, hitting Victoria, BC, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. They’ll also stop in NYC on the way home, playing Brooklyn’s Elsewhere Zone One on August 9 and tickets go on sale Friday, May 10 at 10 AM.

All dates are listed below.
