If you like pop, it’s pretty much impossible to not love Wild Ones. Their hooks are exceptional, sticking around in the crevices of your mind long after the first few listens. They will randomly float into your brain from time to time, manifesting via shower singing and unconscious humming. The songs are meticulously crafted with the utmost attention to detail; every instrument and Pro Tools track has been carefully considered. On top of that, the musicianship is top-notch. The band’s singer, Danielle Sullivan, has a remarkably playful and disparate voice. And if that’s not enough, there’s an inspiring story of perseverance behind the making of their record.
Following up the surreal NBA-inspired video for “It’s Real”, we get fresh visuals for “Paia”. Made by Seven Summits, the video is a testament to the idea that execution is everything. The concept (band plays with lightsaber-esque rods which leave intense trails of color while they’re chilling in the woods) doesn’t strike you as profound. But the execution does. It’s difficult to articulate how dope the video is. You just gotta watch it.
Wild One’s debut, Keep It Safe, is out now via Party Damage Records.
