The best kept secret in music

Press


‘ For those who like to seek out diverse and richly layered ambient music, look no further than the band Mr Wednesday.’

'A journey through lusciously layered soundscapes' best describes their brief teaser set. All the instruments (including vocals) were equally alluring, and combined to create well-balanced, atmospheric tracks. ‘

‘Similar-sounding artists might be Sigur Rós and The Underground Lovers who both share space in my CD collection. ‘

‘Mr Wednesday is definitely a band who likes to experiment with sound and knows where it's headed. They are a talented Adelaide group who carefully craft their sounds, and have the subtle touch to apply them delicately, avoiding self-indulgence. ‘

- Quotes


‘ Mr Wednesday created a mesmerising atmosphere with their live performance. Far from being lulled to sleep, I was drawn into their dream-like universe.’

‘Although they carry the "experimental" tag, Mr Wednesday are reminiscent of British mood cultivators Elbow, the Doves and Radiohead (in their quieter electronic moments) and Aussie act Decoder Ring.’

‘A journey well worth exploring. If they don't contribute to a movie soundtrack some day...I would be surprised. ‘
- Quotes


"About to release a debut album are “Mr Wednesday” who spent an awe inspiring few weeks piecing together what can only be described as an “Amazing Record” we have been waiting for a band like this to come along for ages and we were not disappointed!! Making use of our new Fender Rhodes Keyboard, our concert room for drums, the Neve Pre’s and just about every other piece of equipment we had, these guys produced an incredible collection of soundscapes carefully sculpted into sophisticated arrangements and superbly delivered to give us one hell of a record!! They should release in the next few months and we have a good feeling that this will do something special too!"

Bio

Mr Wednesday's fusion of rich junkyard percussion, electronic beats, textured synthesizer/samples, ethereal vocals and neurotically treated guitars provide the perfect playground for the imagination.

The five piece are self-proclaimed mood cultivators. They continue to refine the difficult craft of expressing and presenting ideas, thoughts and feelings through their unique concept based electronic art-rock music.

A beautifully layered wall of sound, moody and evocative wasteland music, a journey for the senses, music to get lost in, are just a few ways one might describe Mr Wednesday’s sound.

The band have recently finished recording their debut full length concept album at John Reynold’s Studios, Adelaide. Co-produced by Matt Hills, the album explores the mental journey of a fictional character ‘Mr Industry’ as he goes about his daily routine within an imaginary corporate controlled city. Mr Wednesday will be releasing the album in May 2006.

Mr Wednesday's live performances are enhanced through the use of a fully integrated video and visual show.
