SXSW 2014 Interview: Wonder Villains

In my first SXSW 2014 interview, I caught up with Northern Irish indie pop band Wonder Villains at the British Music Embassy at Latitude 30 Monday night. The evening’s Creative Belfast event was hosted by none other than Radio 1 DJ Phil Taggart, and the music lineup included Rams’ Pocket Radio and Unknown in addition to the exuberant Wonder Villains. Band members Ryan McGroarty, Eimar Coyle, Kieran Coyle and Cheylene Murphy were positively bubbling with excitement as they got ready to take the stage, as you can hear below.

Wonder Villains’ set included both ‘Blonde’ and ‘Debbie’, the latter of which they dedicated to Blondie singer Debbie Harry after hearing a rumour that Blondie would be in town for SXSW. New single ‘Marshall’ and fan favorite ‘Zola’ were also highlights of the show.

Many thanks to Jimmy for setting up this interview.
