Following Wild- a symphonic maze of exploits and adventures. From the cautionary tale “WOODS” of an animal-abusing child, to the stringing twang of “WIRES,” an ode to modern amenities, the album travels from traditional to experimental, fresh to forgotten, minimal to maximum and urban to wild.
Following Wild is partially about the battle to balance our primal and organic tendencies with the overlayed expectations and culture of the civilized world. (It’s also about morning sex, road trips, the act of shaving and staying undomesticated.) The music’s about the grit under your fingernails, the bones beneath the asphalt, and the text messages we don’t show each other.
