Before the indie rock world imploded with vintage '80s sounds, Wild Nothing were doing it first. The project started as bedroom recordings by frontman/mastermind Jack Tatum while he was in college in Virginia. It quickly became a huge thing: They released two critically heralded albums, and then sort of disappeared.
Three years later and they are ready for their return. The album is called Life Of Pause. Check out two songs from the release above, "To Know You" and "TV Queen."
Tatum described the new album process in a press release:
I desperately wanted for this to be the kind of record that would displace me. I’m terrified by the idea of being any one thing, or being of any one genre. And whether or not I accomplish that, I know that my only hope of getting there is to constantly reinvent. That reinvention doesn’t need to be drastic, but every new record has to have it’s own identity, and it has to have a separate set of goals from what came before … There’s definitely a different kind of ‘self’ in the picture this time around. There’s no real love lost, it’s much more a record of coming to terms and defining what it is that you have — your place, your relationships. I view every record as an opportunity to write better songs. At the end of the day it still sounds like me, just new.
