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.

After an extensive run of live shows, including festivals such as Liverpool Sound City, FOCUS Wales, Liverpool Psych Fest, Farmfest, Festival No 6 and more recently BreakOut West in Canada, Worldcub are now looking to release new music in 2022 along with band members, Dion Jones, Osian Land and Elin Fouladi, who have recently joined the setup.

“…the end product never ceases to enchant and surprise – which is all you can ask, really. It is simultaneously gentle and powerful.”

“Although it’s still only early days in the band’s fledgling career, their potential is enormous.”
