WYNONA BLEACH Live In Manchester
In Your Ears Music Presents WYNONA BLEACH Live from Aatma, Manchester!
Fusing epic shoegaze textures with melodic alt-rock and dream pop, Northern Irish quintet Wynona Bleach officially formed in Belfast in 2018. Prior to this they toured heavily under a different moniker including Reading & Leeds festivals and a 10 date Russian headline tour.
In January of 2018, they issued their debut single “Eyes Burning ,” and followed this up with a self-titled EP “Sugar“, pressed on limited edition green vinyl under their own label “Madame Mazu”. In 2019/2020, weeks after being personally chosen as support for Alice In Chains on the Irish leg of their world tour, Wynona Bleach moved a full recording studio from Belfast to an abandoned warehouse near Coimbra, Portugal, where they lived & worked with Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral) to record their first full length LP “Moonsoake” – a release delayed by covid restrictions and vinyl-shortages.
The album was partly mixed by Grammy Nominated mixing engineers Avril Mackintosh and Andy Bradfield (Rufus Wainwright, Manic Street Preachers , The xx + more). Ahead of their debut in 2022 they released 4 singles from their debut, “Glimmer“, “Drag“, “Aubergines” and “Moonsoake”and announced their signing to Fierce Panda Records . The debut album “Moonsoake” was released on Feb 18th 2022.

That has Manchester’s musical heritage running through it like the writing in rock’ – Guy Garvey, Elbow “Life-affirming Mancunian electro-pop” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music “Lush” – John Kennedy, Radio X Test Card Girl is a solo project by Manchester singer-songwriter Catherine Burgis. Having grown increasingly frustrated with an admin-based existence, Catherine performed her first gig as a solo artist in February 2020, with all subsequent gigs immediately being cancelled due to the dawning of the global pandemic. With live performance not possible, Catherine turned her attention to recording and released her first single ‘Holds Me Down’ in 2020. The single was picked up by BBC 6Music, Radio X, Absolute Radio and XS Manchester and she was named Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music ‘One to Watch’ in January 2021.
