The indie folk band from Southampton who play beautiful, emotionally charged songs popped into the South:Live lounge for a session and chat with BBC Radio Solent's Phil Jackson.
Wise Children started out as a solo project for singer/songwriter Robin Warren-Adamson which rapidly grew in size to a three-piece.
They've been together for less than a year, and write gentle heart-wrenching acoustic songs with sweeping melodies based on their experiences, people, friends and lovers.
Playing a quirky array of instruments from cello to banjo and glockenspiel, they have a potent sound which is best compared to Sigur Rós, Idlewild and Radiohead.
They've recently released a four-tracked self-titled EP. The band wanted it to sound 'earthy' so they recorded it in all sorts of places including a Southampton cinema, and 'I found her in a bath' was as you'd expect recorded in the bath!
The summer sees them gigging around the south and recording a second EP.
