Lt Dan Buckley here with my DJ pick for this week. It’s Wild Child’s “Think It Over” from their new album Expectations which drops Feb. 9 on Dualtone Music Group.
Wild Child won’t settle. For seven years now the Austin-based ensemble has carried its infectious blend of indie-pop and infectious melodies across the international music scene, charting viral hits and wrapping their arms around a diverse and dedicated fan base. But earlier this year when the band set out to make their fourth studio album, they found they had their hands full: After half a decade of maturation, the group had grown beyond its traditional writing and recording process. “We had too many ideas for how we wanted to make this record” says Kelsey Wilson, the group’s lead vocalist and violinist. She shrugs. “So we said, ‘Why not just do all of them?’” Expectations was the result. Listen to the single “Think It Over” below and let us know what you think!
Catch them at Mercy Lounge with The Wild Reeds April 11. Buy your tickets here.
