Melbourne/Naarm artist WILDING celebrates the release of new album Whatever I Am with a massive launch party at The Old Bar, Fitzroy.

Whatever I Am is out on Friday 3 May.

Come along to hear Wilding’s barbed slice-of-life songs about escaping from the mundane, exploring one’s identity, misguided tech-love, the daily absurdities of trying to get by, freedom through velocity, stale misplaced dreams, and the struggle to get off the sofa. All these themes are entwined within a patchwork of working-class characters and experiences. And dotted with Wilding’s own ultra-specific reference points of biscuits, betting shops, and domesticity.

At its core, Whatever I Am is an album about generational identity. Wilding asks… is this me? Was this me? Will this be me?
The Wilding band experience is a charming clash of neo-disco grooves, bouncy synths, sleek new wave basslines, and awkwardly bent Britpop guitar hooks.

Joining Wilding will be the melancholically uplifting jangle-pop of REDSPENCER and the post-punk sounds of newcomers FOLLIES.

The artists acknowledge that this performance takes place on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We pay respects to elders past and present and emerging. We also recognise sovereignty has never been ceded and no treaty has been signed.
