The Wonder is a band composed of Australian Matt Davis on guitar and vocals. Accompanied by three French guys: Alexandre Gontard on bass, Laurent Baron on drums and Nico Defeudis on guitar. They sound a little bit like parts of Pavement, Big Thief and even Sufjan Stevens.
Matt Davis is an Australian musician living in Paris. He was the founding member of the bands Gersey and Bombazine Black. Gersey was a well-known indie rock band in Australia in the late 90s/early 2000s. They released four albums and a couple of EPs and would tour with bands like Pavement, Wilco and The Flaming Lips.
They toured the US twice, performing at venues like the Mercury Lounge in NY and on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic in LA. Bombazine Black was an instrumental project that Matt started after Gersey. They released two albums in 2009/10. A bunch of their songs featured in films and they played some fairly depressing shows in NY, LA and Austin.
May 31, 2019 saw the release of the debut album LOVE. In anticipation for the album The Wonder released two singles: When We Are Young (We Run and We Run), on Friday March 1, 2019. Followed by She Don’t Mind, out April 1.
The recent tour that The Wonder have just come back from was a European tour supporting ‘Spiral Stairs’. Prague, Paris and London where treated to some sweet tunes such as tracks from LOVE.
