Wild Ones Release Video for "From Nothing"

Wild Ones have released a brand new music video for “From Nothing” off of their debut LP, Keep It Safe. Filmed in a ghost town in eastern Oregon, the location and premise are enticing. What starts as a simple video to accompany addictive synth leads and endearing vocals slowly turns into something more concerning and unexpected. Enjoy the video below and be sure to catch Wild Ones at the Crystal Ballroom on November 29th with Typhoon. Don’t spend too much time worrying about the video's cliffhanging conclusion, the band has promised to release alternate endings in the near future. - Benjamin Toledo


Wild Ones at Doug Fir 10.6

Wild Ones are taking the stage with the sounds from Keep It Safe, their first full length LP off of Party Damage Records. What we have here is pristine synth-pop, fresh as rain and easy for the ears to percolate. Synths playfully shift from effervescent and twinkling in the background to dense and chordal in the forefront. The vocal pours itself delicate and clear into a sweet blend of Grimes meets Memory House. Tracks like “Paia” display excellent melodic bass playing. Drumming is tight and emphasizes both chill wavey, echo-chamber beats as well as a little neo-disco. While maintaining an infectious positivity, the group displays versatility in the poignant and brooding title track and heavier, blood rushing closers like “Lion Heart”. Wild Ones sound refreshingly sincere which, according to band member Thomas, was their exact intent. He emphasized the band's democratic songwriting process, (only incorporating what they were naturally inclined to play) to develop what he described as a "healthy" egalitarian progression to their distinct sound. - Ted Jamison


Wild Ones Play Doug Fir 1.20

As a part of the band Eskimo & Sons the clear, chiming voice of Danielle Sullivan was front and center. After the group disbanded, bandmate Thomas Himes didn't want to give up making music and must have believed that Sullivan’s voice should be heard. He persuaded Sullivan to find the words to sing over new material and they continued on. They invited back another E&S member, Clayton Knapp, who took an electronic approach to the situation after playing bass for the former. Soon, old friends from bands that had toured with E&S came to play. The product of the group, eventually dubbed Wild Ones, is described as "math pop".  "Do the Right Thing" adds ultra-harmonized vocals, tight drums, and computerized whirls over perfectly metered keys and guitars. Sullivan hits the high notes on tracks like "Forever Jam", playing innocently inside of calculated boops and rhythmic complexity. Whatever they are doing, the equation works out. - Brandy Crowe
