The first leg of our tour was so much fun! We made lots of new friends and caught up with some others. Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leeds are all fantastic cities, but Edinburgh tops them all as far as watching bands goes – we were solidly entertained… (read more)
We're releasing our debut album in America!
15 June 2017
We are getting ready to release “On the Inside”, STATESIDE!!!! America better get ready for the “bastard children of Fleetwood Mac”
We decided to re-shoot the album cover, (possibly because there might be some extra tracks for all y’all English fans, wink wink)
SO being the over enthusiastic, and fairly ridiculous DIY band that we are, we woke up at 6am, and emptied all our possessions into a white van and drove to the dessert.
When I say all our possessions, I’m talking; our giant Indian carpet, our arm chairs, bed-side tables, flags, fairy lights, lamps, amps, fire pit, fake flowers, clothes, rails, bunting, even our tacky sparkly Buddha statue.
We drove 2 hours south of Denver and met our friend (and hairstylist) ZIP, who had kindly towed her giant silver bullet caravan out to our location. Here (among the prickly as fuck cactus) we started to decorate.
Hours later, we were all tired and sun burnt, but the place looked incredible, and the sun was setting (best light for taking photos) so we were finally ready to start the shoot. We are so excited to share the final result with you (VERY SOON) but for now, here’s a photo of our photographer (Keaton Andrews) taking a photo of us!
22 March 2017
To put it bluntly, If Austin were a human, we would all wanna marry it and have it’s babies.
We are so grateful to everyone who made it down to see our show. It’s one hell of a tough competition, so we were stoked to see familiar and new faces in the crowd. You guys are so supportive, it’s quite intimidating to to play our Americana influenced music to Americans, so thankyou for being THE BEST.
Asides from drinking beer and watching most-excellent music, we went on a bike ride and saw wild turtles swimming in the river, we ate a ridiculous amount of delicious vegan food, we even managed to shoot a video documenting kit getting pulled over by a cop on a Texan high-way. Which felt just like the movies. (video coming soon).
We also wanna thank our UK fans for keeping us entertained on our 15 hour roadtrip from Denver to Austin. You guys joining us for live videos made the time pass wonderfully.
A particular shout out to the group of Aussie musicians, (The Coconut Kids) who we spent our last night with; dancing to rock n roll, smoking roll up’s and chatting about life till the wee hours. We will be visiting you all some day in the future! Big love.
Lastly, a shout out to our musician friends who didn’t make it over due to the Muslim ban. United Vibrations are the most peaceful zen band, and it genuinely broke my heart to think of them not making in to America to play their first ever American show case!
Rock n Roll,
We're the kids in America!
20 January 2017
Happy New Year one and all, FYI you crazy cats, We’ve moved to Denver, Colorado. Home to legal pot, 300 days of sunshine, The Rocky Mountains, and some pretty fucking sweet dive bars.
Just like our song “Friends” we truly are “always the new kids”, and once again, wildflowers have uprooted. (HAR HAR dad joke, soz.). This time we’ve flown across the pond to the home of some pretty sweet bands, including folk-rockers The Lumineers.
This town is basically designed for our scene. It’s pretty hippy, left-wing, super chilled, and surrounded by incredible nature, including eagles, bears and rattle snakes!!! WTF.
There’s so much to see and write about, there’s so many great musicians; We’ve met like 3 rock mandolin players already. Which has blown our mind.
We love you England, but for now the adventure has taken us nearer our record label “Original 1265 Recordings”.
We have written the second album, and about to start recording it here in Denver, and possibly some in Detroit.
It’s feels a little darker, but then so is the world!
Yes, we are disgusted by Trump, but we are here to rock the fuck out in these hard times and provide a little joy with our music and ridiculous escapades.
Peace out you tarts,
Siddy, Kit, James and tour manager Matt! x

Fancy Being In The Next Wildflowers Video?
29 January 2016
Audio available to listen at: http://tiny.cc/100personalities
We talk about it all the time
How love can make a man unwind
We watch the world roll by
But you don’t see the signs
Coz really love is blind in your eyes
You’ll make a great philosopher,
but you can’t tie your shoe
You got a hundred personalities
And I don’t know which one is you
Your friendly when you wanna be
But there are times when I can see
You just don’t wanna come round
Your head is in a mushroom cloud
Your feet are way underground
You think you’re anti-social,
but we wanna be friends with you
You got a hundred personalities
But I don’t know which one is you
I don’t mind if the sun don’t shine
And you wanna do something new
I don’t care if we go somewhere
As long as its me and you
Your 10 kinds of crazy
That’s what I like about you
And I’m ok if we stay all day
And spend the night here too
I’ll talk about the revolution
If you really want me to
Your 10 kinds of crazy
That’s what I love about you
Well I cried myself to sleep last night
And you never even knew
You got a hundred personalities
Sometimes I just need two
Tonight I’ll lie awake
And I’ll figure out what to do
You got a hundred personalities
Might never know which one is you

09 June 2015
7 days. 7 gigs. Loch Lomond to Glastonbury in 1 week. YOU DECIDE WHERE WE PLAY.
We have decided to fit in a freewheeling acoustic tour all the way down the UK. But here’s where it might get interesting… Taking only our gear and a £100 kitty we will be playing venues that YOU CHOOSE!
You tell us where you want us to play, and the winners who come up with the most inventive places will be announced the day before each date. This could be your bar, your house party, your school, music college, a dinner party. Hell, maybe you want to propose to your girlfriend and fancy a backing band! All we ask is the chance to pass around a bucket to help us get to the next destination.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TWEET US @WildflowersHQ MAKING SURE YOU INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING;
1. #RaceToGlasto HASHTAG
2. WHICH OF THE BELOW REGIONS YOU ARE IN
3. THE VENUE YOU’D LIKE US TO PLAY, AND WHY.
Each day we will update you with our latest financial situation, how the previous night’s gig went, and the winning venue suggestion for the next gig. If things get shaky, we could be busking by the side of the road to get to the next destination!
Here is our intended route, so all suggestions need to be based in and around the below regions:
21st June – The Whistlefield Inn, Loch Lomond
22nd June – Carlisle
23rd June – Kendal
24th June – Manchester
25th June – Birmingham
26th June – Bristol
27th June – Glastonbury
When we get to Glastonbury, we will be donating any money left in the Kitty to a Bristol based charity called Given to Live, which raises money to make live music possible for the vulnerable and excluded. Read more about it here http://www.giventolive.com/
This is our opportunity to have an adventure meeting up with you all, a one-off chance for us to come and play for you, and with a bit of luck, you can help us make it down to Glastonbury in time! So get involved!!!
See yah on the Road,
Siddy, Kit, James and Kendal

We have just come back from our incredible tour supporting Tom Odell (who was mind-blowing live), then we went straight in the studio to record out debut album. Tom, his band and his crew were lovely, and we would be suffering from post-tour blues, but we are very excited about our first headline show coming up on the 14th of November. Tickets are available here. We just want to say a massive thankyou to everyone we met on this tour. Tom’s fans were very welcoming, and we hope to see you on our tour in March.
