Press and Booking Info

Sometimes, things today are better than they used to be. But that’s not always the case. WIGHT know exactly when to take queues from the modern world and when to go back to the roots. Combining a powerful groove with complexity and extraordinary musicianship, they celebrate their musical journey throughout times past and present. Presenting doom-based psychedelic rock at the beginning of their career, WIGHT these days are Miles (Davis) ahead of that. Their carefully crafted fusion rock sound incorporates influences from artists as diverse as the Beatles, Parliament/Funkadelic and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Throw in some African rhythms and sounds along the lines of Osibisa, and the sun will rise even in the coldest and darkest places. This makes their concerts an intense experience – an almost sacral atmosphere can often be felt at WIGHT’s live shows, not only because of the incense used by the band to enhance their performances since the very beginning. WIGHT know how to fan the flames of excitement in the listener and make their audience dance, sing along and indulge in their epic compositions at the same time.
