Wunderhorse – in session for John Kennedy – Radio X – October 7, 2022 – Radio X, London –
Wunderhorse to end the weekend. In session for John Kennedy at Radio X and broadcast on October 7.
Wunderhorse is the stage name of Jacob Slater, formerly frontman for “The Dead Pretties,” a London band. In 2017, the band reported that they were separating to zero-in on their own melodic undertakings. Jacob and his companions, Ben and Oscar, in their late teens, established the band.
They’ve released their debut album, Cub which came out only a few days prior to this session, and while the band is currently on tour in the U.S. opening for Fontaines D.C. as well as headlining their own shows in L.A. and New York earlier last month. They finished up the U.S. leg of the tour only yesterday with the last gig in Boston at The House Of Blues.
Response so far has been very positive, and the Fontaines D.C. audience fit them like a glove. Coupled with radio support via BBC 6 Music and Radio X (in the UK), Wunderhorse are wasting no time creating a solid fanbase, all bolstered by a lot of touring, the key ingredient to at least getting your name out there.
If you missed them this time around or you caught them opening for Fontaines D.C. during this current tour, dial in this session as a reminder of what you can look forward to next time.
