A four-piece alt-pop band that hails from Manchester and Heraklion, Crete, set out to capture universal human emotions in their music, with the concept behind their songwriting the idea that their music is an intersection between alternative and mainstream. Creating an energetic and yet atmospheric backdrop over which singer Eirianna’s vocals are effortlessly draped, the result is a richly nuanced and hugely idiosyncratic brand of alt-pop; its deeply texturous, multi-layered compositions feeling both timely, and timeless.
Read MoreIt’s this idiosyncratic alt-pop rock that has afforded the band the opportunity to tour Eirianna’s native Crete in June 2017, including a 2000 capacity show in her hometown of Heraklion, as well as well-received shows across the UK, including both the Capital and their second hometown of Manchester, including a slot at the highly-regarded SONDER Festival.
Far from just thriving on the live scene however, Wanderlust released their single Tuesday Drive in 2018, establishing an airy aesthetic built on easy going grooves and Eirianna’s aforementioned vocal delivery. It’s their most recent single, Just the same however, that elevates Wanderlust to the next level; the Paramore-esque grooves of their debut replaced with an ever deeper musicality, its disparate elements entwining to create something truly special.
Just the Same is a track about the battle between two sides of one person’s psyche. Their struggle to be with the person they love and for things to be the way they want them to be. It is about having different versions of yourself and how sometimes they can take over. How love can make you crazy and you feel split between two paths in your own mind. It’s about taking control of this and becoming who you really want to be and being with the one you love. If you've ever felt the same way, I'm hoping that this song will become a good friend of yours...And well it might. As hard-hitting as it is beguiling, Just the Same is the sort of track that stays with you long after its opening notes ring out. That's just the tip of the iceberg however, with more material on the way soon, it won't be long before you can expect to see much more of Wanderlust.
