    1. Local Spotlight : The Wild – A Finite Number Of Years

      Posted on in Local Spotlight

      As crystal clear as the water in the artwork, The Wild’s debut EP A Finite Number Of Years opens with ‘Just A Memory,’ featuring bright acoustics and luscious melodies. The tone is really fitting for the vocal style, which is rare considering the falsetto taking dominance on the track. But it is not the impressive high pitched frequencies and relatively light music that holds this song together. No, Jake Weholt beckons, “The world’s still here and we’re alive so lets all calm down,” and then a pulse is felt. The background synths limp the song forward until the drum beat captures the entire feel. It is this slight delicacy that made the song ridiculously catchy, allowing for more impact when the rest of the instruments cut out to the guitar again.
