Much like their name states, the Dutch group Eerie Wanda arrived bold and adventurous with motives to exercise something passionate. The near hour set list fused indie pop elements wrapped with lingering echoes and chilling remains. Fronted by singer Marina Tadic, the four-piece performed at the Satellite Wednesday night before an intimate audience. Layers of soothing harmonies mixed with calming tones quickly took motion of the evenings musical direction. Tambourines and cajon boxes gently collided to create constant momentum throughout the performance but psychedelic riffs and space-like rhythms helped launch their signature sound.
Tardic quickly established her ability to captivate and intrigue the crowd. The bands sound extends decades, traveling from previous eras sighting inspiration while delivering original content that arrives with ambition and enthusiasm. Although fans in attendance were scarce, the performance remained unaltered and served as a passionate piece to captivate every mind present. Coats of tranquility that favored dream like visions and soothing reflections accompanied the gradual approach between songs. Eerie Wanda has enough factors in their live performance to excel and transcend into an active contender.
Eerie Wanda’s debut album ‘Hum’ was released last month via Beyond Beyond is Beyond records. Having finished their stay at SXSW last week, they conclude their month long trek this Saturday, performing at the Troubadour alongside the Allah-Las for the Laurel Canyon Lets Buy A Mountain Benefit Show.
