RIYL: Miniature Tigers, Strange Names, Pure Bathing Culture

Label: Topshelf Records

Wild Ones have been having some success after their EP Heatwave and debut album Keep It Safe, and now they are out with their sophomore album Mirror Touch from Topshelf Records. The maturity of their single is striking, with more refined and balanced melodies and a brighter sound altogether. Have a listen below and enjoy! There are 3 variation of this currently on my radar so far and they are all in the Buy Now link.

Here is some more on the album itself:

Mirror Touch explores spaces of isolation, loneliness and how it feels when the line between self and other becomes blurred. The record title refers to the condition “Mirror Touch Synesthesia” and the physiological experience of empathy. How can you know yourself, when in public you become everyone else? The songs explore the quest to maintain artistic self-integrity in an industry that seeks to homogenize. Solitary in their process of collaboration, Himes and Vicario produce the music, while Sullivan crafts lyrics and melodies, their attempt at self-preservation against the ever-changing expectations of what music should or should not be. Combining their style of upbeat melodies with a backdrop of darker lyrical themes, an inquiry into their artistic process ultimately reflects a balance between earnest head nods to their favorite sounds with a fierce loyalty to their own sense of self.
