Worldcub is piloted by brothers Cynyr and Dion Hamer, they began their musical journey under the name ‘CaStLeS’, taking influence from 70s/80s McCartney and DIY ‘Fantastic Man’, William Onyeabor. They produce material from their home studio on the hills of Eryri, splicing together elements of surf guitar music, kraut-rock grooves and hypnotic psych tinged Cymru vocal harmonies.

Their self-released, site-specific themed debut album ‘Fforesteering’ gained coverage on major platforms such as The Guardian and UNCUT Magazine, with air time on BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Cymru & Wales. The band also earned their debut performance slot on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds Festival in 2016 and found success playing shows as part of the ‘Horizons 12’ scheme; which included a recording session at the historic ‘Maida Vale Studios’ in London.
