Speaking about the creation of ‘Midas’ in a press release, frontman and guitarist Jacob Slater said: “When we first went into the studio to make this record, the only thing we were sure about is how we wanted it to sound; very imperfect, very live, very raw; no frills. We wanted it to sound like your face is pressed up against the amplifiers, like you’ve been locked inside the bass drum.”

In a four-star review of the band’s debut album ‘Cub’NME shared: “‘[The album] is a goodbye to the Jacob Slater we previously knew, and a hugely exciting welcome to a songwriter finally becoming himself. You can envisage him making records like this for decades to come.”

Following the success of the album, the four piece graduated from playing in basements and pubs to filling Glastonbury’s Woodsies tent and selling out Kentish Town’s O2 Forum months in advance.

It also saw Wunderhorse gradually and naturally become a fully-formed band – comprised of Slater alongside guitarist Harry Fowler, drummer Jamie Staples and bassist Peter Woodin – leaving the solo era of Slater’s previous “Wunderhorse” behind.

In other news, the band are set for a busy summer with many major festival slots including Reading & LeedsBoardmasters and TRNSMT, as well as making their festival headline debut at Dot to Dot Festival.
