About Luke Wylde and the Japes

After playing WMF 2014, we are making a return!

Luke Wylde and the Japes are a five piece indie/pop band from Wolverhampton. A mix of acoustic guitar undertones, delicate ukulele highlights, full-bodied bass, energetic percussion and intricate surf-pop-high-life inspired guitar riffs provide the perfect backdrop for the distinctive voices of Luke Wylde and Toni Ansell.

Our debut single, 'Ghost' was described by BBC6Music as 'a very pretty track' and gained regular airtime on BBC radio shows!
