We always say that crowdfunding is a great way for artists to assess their popularity and involve their fans. This is especially true for musicians. And our favorite indie pop band Easy Wanderlings is rocking their fundraising campaign as a proof of our words.
In less than a month’s time, the band had gone beyond the 50% mark for their campaign. They are raising funds to release their debut album titled ‘As written in the stars’.
The official journey of the Wanderlings started only a year back in March 2015. In their own words, “Our music is about the several memories and stories about things we observed about the world as we sat sipping chai at tea stalls, or the times when simple conversations with people around touched us, and even of the feelings we felt while simply being alone with nature.” The five-person band counts Kings of convenience, José González, Nick Drake, Fleet Foxes, The paper Kites, John Mayer, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and Bob Dylan as influencers of their musical styles.
Since June, they have released five singles. All of these songs have garnered great response, not just in India but internationally as well. Music fans from Ireland, UK and Germany have showered love and praise on the Easy Wanderlings. In India, they have performed at some of the coolest venues including Hard Rock Cafe, Tuning Fork and Blue Frog. The biggest nod to their music came in the form of a chance to perform at the NH7 Weekender in December.
This sounds like one heady beginning. But Easy Wanderlings have miles to go before they sleep. Join them on this wonderful journey of discovering simple pleasures of life through music. You can begin right away by contributing to their fundraiser on Crowdera.
