My Mixtape: Virginia Wing

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 - 12:00

Virginia Wing are Manchester-based duo Alice Merida Richards and Sam Pillay, whose acclaimed latest album, Ecstatic Arrow, offers up a welcome escape from the everyday through avant-garde synth pop.

Ahead of their performance here at Southbank Centre in April, Pillay has put together this special Spotify playlist, which he introduces below.

“When we used to live in Camberwell, one of my favourite things to do was walk home along the Southbank, over Waterloo Bridge and down Walworth Road. This is a playlist of tunes well timed and paced for that journey”.



Virginia Wing, with Deep Throat Choir and Mich Cota, performed here at our Queen Elizabeth Hall on Tuesday 2 April.


More than just the home of Meltdown. Every year Southbank Centre presents live contemporary music gigs and performances that blur genre boundaries and showcase the best new sounds from across the globe.
