Wild Pink’s recent self-titled full length (out via Tiny Engines) is a slow burner. Though the instrumentation is warm, sincere and steady, It’s the poignant details in the lyrics that catch you by the collar and force you to press your ear into singer John Ross’ earnest murmur a bit more.
For as sleepy as the record sounds, it includes incredibly romantic and energized images of mundanity, loneliness, freedoms of youth versus the constraint and perplexity faced as an adult. It is a sprawling soundscape that seeps in like watercolor.
Catch Wild Pink along with Candy Ambulance, Award Show and Space Is Haunted at Sewing Soul Studios. Show at 8pm. $5 for the touring bands.
