Whiskey for the Wounded is the tangled, drunken knot at the heart of Brighton Songwriter David T. M. Vine. A mangled clump of skewed autobiography, half-remembered nightmares, Bukowskian poetry and single-malt. Regrets, apologies and crowns of thorns.
Whiskey for the Wounded have been playing together for 2 years, releasing their first, self-titled EP in July 2014. In that time they have supported established artists such as James Yorkston, Jim Noir and Treetop Flyers as well as local artists such as Ed Prosek and Bird Eats Baby.
Whilst that first release was essentially a solo singer-songwriter with a backing band, new EP ‘A Drop of Blood in a Bowl of Milk’ embraces the group dynamic. Taking influence from Sigur Ros, Elliott Smith and Bon Iver, ‘A Drop of Blood in a Bowl of Milk’ is a darker, more progressive record with a more pronounced electronic influence.
We’ve heard nothing but great things about Whiskey For The Wounded and are thrilled to have added them to the lineup for 2017. They have a real edge and can guarantee they’ll add something very special to the weekend. Brighton continues to unearth musical gems – Devon deserves a taste of them.
