TUNE Wedding - Ruth
Wedding is the musical project of 24 year old Thomas Craig. Originally based in London, the newcomer cut his teeth as a touring musician for a number of acts including Charles Howl before going it alone and upping sticks to Germany.
The debut EP "Wedding", written and recorded with New Yorker Zachary Taube during the pair’s time in Berlin, is a delicately soulful and intimate EP. Songs that feel like they have been crafted for your ears only - Thomas speaks of the recording process, ‘A lot of the warm nostalgic elements came from watching a cold grey winter turn to lovely Berlin spring and the feeling of possibility that came with that.’
In many ways, this explains the soothing and reflective tone of the EP and it’s ability to transport you to a similarly nostalgic memory.
Drawing influences from classic songwriters such as John Lennon, Lou Reed and Neil Young, as well as more modern acts such as Girls, Kurt Vile and Woods, Wedding create a sound that is effortless and in fact timeless. The vocal melodies throughout are gentle but not at any point tentative, with layers of lush guitars washing over and often mimicking and harmonising with the vocals.
The EP was self produced and recorded in Thomas' Berlin apartment to tape machine, a format well suited to the warm body of the tracks.
