Debut EP 'Rock by Numbers' OUT NOW!
Recorded before Pigeon Wigs had played a single gig, the duo of Jugessur and Franklin-Williams wrote the mini-album over the course of just a few weeks. Making for an impressively accomplished debut release that spans alternative rock references from across the ages, the band say they just wanted to “arrive on the scene fully-formed, like a baby with a moustache or furniture not from IKEA”. The 11-track record was produced and mixed by the esteemed Tom Rees of fellow Cardiff band Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard.
Speaking about the EP on the day of its release, the band’s axeman-in-chief Louis Jugessur expresses:
“Through a series of funding delays, rescheduling meetings, and global catastrophe we have waded, to be coming out on the other side is akin to drinking fresh water after being lost in the desert or that moment you realise both nostrils are clear after an especially bad cold. This is only the beginning, you ain't seen nothing yet."
Pigeon Wigs are a 5-Piece alt rock band sprung from Cardiff’s fertile soil. Their riff-laden fuzzy tones and melodic harmonies come crashing together to form a wild beast like no other. Whether aiming their sights at social commentary, dysfunctional relationships or alien abductions they leave you ravenous for their next drop.
Having already received glowing praise from Adam Walton at BBC Radio Wales and again from Bethan Elfyn, and a multitude of online press praise including Line of Best Fit, Glasswerk, The Crack Magazine and The Rodeo, their debut EP Rock By Numbers is sure to solidify the band as true ones-to-watch as they continue their rampage around the South Wales music scene and beyond.
