American indie pop band Wild Child will be headlining at The Empire in Belfast on March 9.

“It’s not necessarily the performing that’s addictive, but being able to connect with that many people at once,” says Kelsey Wilson, who shares lead vocal and songwriting responsibilities with Alexander Beggins.

“You feel like you’re together in something––like you experience the whole thing together.

“It’s family therapy with a lot of dancing.”

Wild Child’s third album Fools is an ambitious collection of lush pop that takes sad stories and transforms them into an ebullient love letter to the power of music, and the art of living with yourself.

Made up of the core duo of Kelsey (violin and vocals) and Alexander (ukulele and vocals), together with a talented five-piece band, the Austin-based Wild Child has built a sprawling grassroots following on the strength of two charming albums, as well as high-spirited live shows that feel like self-contained joy benders.

Tickets for the Belfast show are on sale now from all usual outlets.
