Exeter trio Wildwood Kin have unveiled the video for their new single ‘Warrior Daughter’, due for release on 2 September. The song has a mellowed indie vibe with the occasional hint of The Bangles and The Corrs. Add in some nymphs and other fantasy woodland vibes and yes, you have this musical discovery. Will it be the gem in your collection? Well, if you want a walk through the carefree girl groups of history, this will give you a great chance to reminisce on music gone by with a contemporary twist.

The trio is made up of sisters Beth and Emillie Key and cousin Meghann Loney. The track is taken from their forthcoming EP, which is produced by Jamie Evans (Mexicolas) and mixed by Brad Spence (Radiohead, Passenger, Coldplay, Alt J). Wildwood Kin were shortlisted for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards last year and recently played the BBC Introducing showcase at The Phoenix, Exeter as part of Radio 1’s Big Weekend as well as headlining the BBC Introducing stage at Somersault festival last summer.

Wildwood Kin tour extensively and recently completed a headline tour in the picturesque settings of the Alps at the start of the year. They will also be heading out as the supporting act for critically acclaimed Texan duo The Oh Hellos on their UK tour next month, which features a London show at Bush Hall on 17 August.
