We used to talk, and then it went very quiet for a couple of weeks. Weeks turned into months. Before we knew it, a New Year had whooshed by then and everything after until now.
We’re still here and still alive. Sometimes it’s tempting to get swept up with the need to constantly communicate because you can, but we’ve not had much to say in the last few months. There have been some comings and goings and then some more comings again. We’ve been thinking, writing, playing and re-learning to enjoy ourselves. And now we’re thinking about doing all those things we used to like gigs, like recording, and maybe even talking.
Watch this space. TIW OUT.
London, you are beautiful: A glittering, sculptural sense of wonder. Aboard Alexei’s rooftop this view led us to the ebb of our evening after a writing day which yielded
new song klaxon ————– a brand new TIW song!——-end of new song klaxon
Sneak preview of new song lyrics
Were any of you in this scene last Friday night? If only we could zoom in and spot you sipping your mojito’s along Southbank or drinking in the view from the Shard.
So, yes a new song we have! We are excited to continue working on it over the next few weeks and releasing it to the ears of TIW fans and beyond. Its preview may well be hosted at something similar to this growing trend of House Concerts. How cosy!
In the mean time – have a lovely site recommendation; marrying two wonderful art-forms, to soundtrack the final slog through our Friday afternoon:
A cool union of literature and music
TIW over and out for now! x
The Infinite Wilds are now available on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon! We are EXCITED! Keyboard & mice at the ready….
BASH (open spotify type Wishing Leaves)
BOSH! (open itunes type the same).
And because it’s Friday let’s have a photo or two! Who needs more words at this point in the working week? A few pics from our debut festival appearance at Cherry Tree Farm:
Cherry Tree Farm – come on in
Vow at one of its many peaks
Lindy hop hop hoppin’
I’m not sure where everyone else has got to..
We had a lot of fun and look forward to the next one!
Happy Weekend all you lovely people xx
Killing three hours in a hotel lobby waiting in the island of sheepy sound+wet weather (geddit? geddit?) waiting for a late flight home…and I wish I could say it was in the name of rock and roll. But I can see my colleague knit out of the corner of my eye and Public Broadcasting Service are spilling their wonderful concoction of the past and present into my ears. So it’s not far off. Talking of past and present, I watched Cloud Atlas on the way over. Je recommande!
Here is the lovely pattern I see when I look up.
And here is the lovely man I see when I look over there:
The Infinite Wilds are trippy happy excited to be playing at The Festival Of The Year* on Saturday for Rach and friends joint 30th Birthday. With the beer at a frugal price of £2 I’m a little concerned about the level of finesse in our music making bones by the time we step up to the festival stage – but that just makes the anticipation even more thrilling.
And then we are heading into the writing zone over the summer months so we can’t wait to reveal the fruits of that loving labour soon!
In the next blog:

TIW! BANGING ON! (with violin, guitar and bass accompaniment) ABOUT ….THEIR….SUPPPORT ACT! Ha, fooled you all.
So, we’ve not really told all you lovely people about many of the details of our big PARTY next week. Yus, it will be £5 in (including an EP and badges) and doors open at 7pm. It’s in London’s trendy Heavenly Social. But what else? Well, firstly the aforementioned support.
I am very happy to tell you that my personal Suffolk ally Cristabel will be performing a small, exclusive set on guitar to get our party off to a quite brilliant start around 8:15. Don’t miss her – she’s brilliant!
Then, around 8:45, it’s us. We’ll be playing through our EP, but also all the songs you guys know and love. Well, our ones anyway. So if you fancy a little boogie, shuffle, or just a bobbing of the head, make sure you get down in time! We’re very punctual (some of us).
Finally, The Disco. We’re curating and DJing until 1am – who will be the last ones standing with us?!
Once again, doors to this place of wonder within which your favourite Saturday night awaits will open at 7pm. We can’t wait to see you there! Cristabel can’t wait either
You may have noticed some excitement diffusing from The Infinite Wilds oriented around our EP Party on Saturday 13th April?
WELL for everyone who emails us to say they’re in (firstname.lastname@example.org) and to everyone down as “Going” on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/325850940848818/), your door entry is a mere £5!
Not only does this allow you the pleasure of watching TIW And Friends, dancing the night away til 1am at The Social (http://www.thesocial.com/) and generally a bloomin’ fun night; but is also gets you a copy of our quite wonderful, exquisitely sleeved EP ! (Shocked with glee face).
Your name, that which was bestowed upon you at birth, is your ticket for this exceptional honour. If it’s there, on that “Going”list on facebook, or if it’s there, in our email inbox as a YES I’LL BE THERE, the honour is yours.
You want it, don’t you? Just like this cat wants his fly:
So, a few things to let you lovely people all know while we’re waiting for the sun. We’re looking to book a few gigs in the run the up to our EP Launch Party at the Heavenly Social which are all going to be in or around the London area. We’ve already confirmed one with The Cavendish Arms, but watch this space for (hopefully) a couple more that week.

We’re also gearing up for what is starting to look like a busy Summer. It’s not very rock’n’roll to plan too far ahead, but thankfully, we’re anything but rock’n’roll anyway. One or two festivals are on the horizon, and we’re hoping to make it a few more. People keep bugging us to play more gigs, so hopefully this will satiate the hunger!
Finally, we retreating, once again, to the country in the next few weeks to write some more songs, walk in muddy fields, and probably get lost in the dark. If you don’t hear from us for a while, send a search party…
