If you’re not hooked on this track after 10 seconds in, you should get your hearing checked. This track is off the fantastic self-titled EP the NY duo dropped not too long ago, which should (briefly) tide you over until their next full length, Voices, is released, which is supposedly right around the corner…
Son Lux blew me away this year. He’s got such a cool sound and his latest album, Lanterns, doesn’t disappoint one bit. Hands down one of my favorite albums of 2013 and i’ll never get tired of this track.
In late 2012, this Portland five-some almost threw in the towel, but they carried on and their perseverance definitely paid off. I can’t wait to hear more from Wild Ones, I believe they have a bright future ahead of them. In the meantime, enjoy my personal favorite track (“Curse Over Me”) from their fantastic debut album, Keep It Safe (along with a little bonus remix of “Rivals”, courtesy of Trails and Ways).
