New indie-pop trio WILD release their uplifting debut EP Lace & Layers about issues in relationships and how we treat mental health in our society.
Comprised of Lauren Luiz (vocals), Tyler Thompson (producer/guitar) and Zach Daegatano (vocals/guitar), their first single ‘Vagabond,’ set the tone of their powers, quickly surpassing over millions of streams. This prompted them to be signed by Mark Jowett, one of the founding members of Nettwerk.
WILD keep their audience hooked with uplifting vocals and finely crafted indie-pop layers. The infectiousness from and sun-kissed hazy pop ‘Here We Go’ hold on dearly to the warm summer days.
‘I’ll Let You Know’ echoes an Of Mice and Men vibe, bringing pop-folk aesthetic as guitars and vocals work in harmony. Jangly chords ring out over punchy foot-tapping beats as the LA trio perform a unique two-part vocal delivery.
Talking about the EP’s title, the band said it’s a lyric from the song ‘Brighter Side’, to do with mental health and it’s treated in our society. “We tend to cover up the problem and pretend everything is okay instead of confronting it.”
“The whole EP was produced/recorded in our apartment by us as we were going through strange times. We’re all really lucky to have each other. Most people cope with issues in relationships and day-to-day life with ‘Lace & Layers’ but as long as you can summon up the strength to be yourself through all that mess, you can find the people to help you get through the hard times. This sentiment carries through to ‘Just Begun,’ a song about being young and reckless, and having someone who loves you unapologetically as you grow and find your own way.” – WILD
