Ignore the Flags on the Beaches

The first full-length album of Acres Wild is out may 13th. The first single Line of Sight reached #12 on Spotify Global Viral Chart. 

Oslos indie pop quintet Acres Wild formed when Magnus Askjer Lefsaker started writing songs and sent them guitarist Simen Følstad Nilsen. They produced the first demos in Magnus living room, centered around Magnus summery pop melodies and Simens jangly guitar work.
