STRANGE WILDS SHARE NEW SONG ‘STARVED FOR’ VIA NOISEY
DEBUT ALBUM SUBJECTIVE CONCEPTS RELEASED 24TH JULY ON SUB POP
You can now listen to Strange Wilds’ ‘Starved For,’ the ferocious new single from Subjective Concepts, their full-length debut.
Noisey, who premiered the track, said: “On their upcoming record Subjective Concepts…the band delivers songs displaying flourishes of the best parts of the Northwest’s storied punk history without using nostalgia as a crutch. Their new track “Starved For” sounds exactly like what you’d want to be listening to if you lived inside of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater game. It’s exactly what you’d expect from a band on Sub Pop, heavy riffs that can still guile any “normal” person into falling in love with the band’s music. In a hair under three minutes the trio manages to create a broad soundscape that covers way more ground than you’d expect on paper.”

About Strange Wilds
Strange Wilds is a musical power-trio from Olympia, Washington.
There are three members: Allen, who plays drums; Sean, who plays bass; and Steven, who sings and plays the guitar. There is also a freight train, several buzzsaws, a banshee, and some heavy, heavy Pacific doom-and-gloom up in the mix.
The group formed in 2012, when Steven met Sean while Sean’s band from Boise was playing a gig in a house where Steven lived. They became friends, and several months later Steven called Sean, who had just relocated to Olympia for college, to form the band. They were called Wet, and gigged around the West Coast as a four-piece. Allen was added as a full-time member in 2014 after a line-up change, and the band changed its name to Strange Wilds to release a 4-song EP and tour immediately. Sub Pop came calling, and signed the band last autumn. The band is now set to release its full-length debut, Subjective Concepts, this summer.
Strange Wilds slays with the hellish fury of the Northwest hardcore scene’s best, the heavenly scuzz of a Bleach-era Nirvana, and the purgatorial punishment of Touch & Go post-rock meets Devo’s de-evolution machine. The 11 songs here bleed with the hybrid DNA of Seattle’s past and future, disparate scenes fused together with sneering menace and intelligent fury in equal shares (read more at Sub Pop).
