Very different sound coming from Wild Nothing here, he mentions the influences of Brina Eno & David Bowie and you can definitely hear that in the first track. I like it, but it was so unexpected it’s taking me a bit to settle into it. The singing style change is quite drastic. I really have no idea what to expect on the album, but I’ve loved¬†everything¬†he’s put out, so I figure I’ll love this as well.
What do you guys think of the new direction?

Jack's intro - ‚ÄúThis is a record that happened very fast for me. We had just gotten back from a particularly long European tour last November, our first supporting Nocturne, and I was feeling a lot of things. I found myself struggling with what it meant to be a musician, with what music in general meant to me and what part I could possibly play in it. Playing the same songs every night for months left me bored with myself. But when I got home, for the first time in awhile it suddenly seemed that the pressure was off. We didn‚Äôt have any tours planned for several months and I started to remember again why I love music in the first place. I listened to Brian Eno and David Bowie for weeks on end and felt like I was hearing them for the first time. I took a trip to Miami with my girlfriend. I visited my family. I felt free to try things musically that I would have stifled before. The songs on this EP were recorded over a 10 day period and are a reflection of this time. Of all the frustrations and successes and moments of peace in between.‚ÄĚ -Jack
