Taking their name from the titles of two poems in the collection Flying Over Sonny Liston by American poet Gary Short, Wovoka Gentle continue to build on their reputation for intelligent, intricate songwriting and immersive live shows. From 2015 to 2016 the band released three EPs via Yucatan Records; Wovoka Gentle [Yellow], Wovoka Gentle [Blue] and Wovoka Gentle [Red], to critical acclaim (‘surreal is really the only word that comes to mind for such an impressive introduction’ – Consequence Of Sound), with 2017 heralding the release of split single ‘They Mostly Come At Night Mostly’/‘Branscombe’ and the band’s first headline UK tour. In early 2018 Wovoka Gentle signed to Nude Records and are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album, set for release in the first half of 2019.
