Austin-based indie duo The Wild Now have released a new track called “Tongue Tied,” which will appear on their sophomore EP Afterglow, dropping on May 19th.
The Wild Now consists of Taylor Baker and Drew Walker, and their fate was destined, as they met at a Local Natives show during SXSW in 2013. Soon after their chance meeting, they started to write and play music together, finally forming a duo under their original name of Taylor & the Wild Now. They shortened their name in 2016, and that is how we know them now.
“All songs were mixed by Matty Green (Wild Belle, Yeasayer, TV on the Radio). Driving synths and jungle disco-esque guitar work build on the band’s previous dreamy, island indie pop to create a diverse collection of songs that one can listen to on the beach or at a rave. These tracks will be showcased where it all began, at SXSW 2017. The Wild Now has come full circle and is ready to be Austin, TX’s latest success story.”
