Wicked Splinters come from London, Liverpool and Sardinia. They are Andy Crowe songwriter, lead vocals, harmonica and guitar; Alan Roberts on bass guitar and vocals; and Nick Pillitu, drums.
Formed in 2014, Wicked Splinters bring together a mixture of melodic blues and folk, overlaying a darker brooding grunge. A cross country blend of rock and indie.
With tales of drunken driving, attempted murder, a transvestite junky arsonist and a young singer songwriter, whose life cut brutally short by a pack of prairie wolves, there's always a sharp edge to a Wicked Splinter. Their debut EP, White Knuckle Hand-Break, was released in February 2016, where they went on to support Space, alt-J and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
