“The new album, “When the Pool is Occupied”, is a wonderfully upbeat and soulful collection of 18 original songs reflecting on growing up in the modern world. Their sound seems to be influenced by an eclectic range of genres... from indie-pop to blue-eyed soul, R&B and funk to rock and roll.” BN1 Magazine – December 2021 Edition
Championed by BBC Introducing, RadioX and critics globally, Wild Horse are prodigious in every way. Jack Baldwin (20), older brother Henry Baldwin (22) and friend Ed Barnes (21) on drums gel together flawlessly to form irresistibly catchy indie rock, always uniquely infused with their diverse tastes. They cover all bases - incorporating pop, classic rock, punky reggae, blue-eyed soul, dirty funk, rap, Latin and so much more into their distinctive sound - truly their own brand of indie.
Lyricist Jack takes inspiration from daily life, relationships, and (naturally) the experiences of being a politically charged Gen Z-er living in a chaotic social and political landscape. With an extremely mature song writing style far beyond their years, Wild Horse continue to excite, engage and captivate their ever-growing audience with each release.
The East Sussex boys are renowned for an exciting, powerful stage show, having honed their craft from an early age at all the iconic venues in London & the Southeast as well as several festivals, often playing the same stages as many of their heroes once did. Henry & Jack both take turns on Guitar, Bass & Keyboards from track to track, occasionally Henry may add some stunning Harmonica & always Ed is keeping everything in time with his superb drumming, all 3 add their voices to excellent vocal arrangements.
