Wiri Donna Announces 'Being Alone' EP Release Tour + Shares Single 'Dream Of Me'

Wiri Donna aka Bianca Bailey has announced a full scale nationwide tour with band, celebrating the release of her forthcoming Being Alone EP, the Te Whanganui-a-Tara rising songwriting talent's first new bundle of tunes since 2020's Sprouts two tracker. Not only that, but Bailey has also unveiled second single from the six song EP 'Dream Of Me', rising to the challenge of March's chart-topping 'No Follow Through' with shimmering waves of guitar and woozy vocals — waving goodbye to Aotearoa's summer months with a hazy yet assuredly hook-packed anthem. Launching on 27th May, Wiri Donna's launch tour for Being Alone will include live bandmates Harrison Scholes (Arjuna Oakes, F.A.I.R.Y), James MacEwan (Arjuna Oakes) and Elliott Dawson (DOONS). Preorder your own vinyl LP copy HERE and get amongst at the gigs below, with special guests to be announced...

“The EP is a sort of coming of age record, less of things you learn as you’re growing up, more things that you discover when you’re alone. I’d like to think it strikes a balance between eternal optimism and pure devastation, a sentiment that people can either relate or sympathise with.” - Wiri Donna
