Bubblebrain’s Hot Picks #2 Kilig & Fernweh

Continuing our series of explorations of the musical landscape of Jersey, in particular the pubs and clubs of St Helier hosting live bands events. On Friday June 30th we had a great time at the Troubadour in the company of Kilig & Fernweh, a rootsy, funky 5-piece band and their appreciative fans. The band mixes exuberant improvisation with a solid cache of craftily woven originals, pop-hooky but not conventionally so, drawing from an eclectic set of influences from rhythm and blues, jazz funk and blue-eyed soul.

Since forming in 2015, Kilig & Fernweh have made their mark with crowd-pleasing shows at the Troubadour, Havana, and Channel Islands surfers mecca the Watersplash in association with Trunk o’ Funk. They have delighted audiences at summer festivals including Folklore, Peas & Glove, Vale Earth Fair, Groove de Lecq and Jersey Live.
