What others are saying about Wild Ones:
“The group’s debut album, last year’s Keep It Safe, took a long year to record and even longer to release. Even so, despite all the craft and care that went into the album, the songs still feel casual.” -NPR Music
“In a music world where synth-heavy electro-pop frequently has its tongue firmly in its cheek, it can be difficult to know when a group is displaying a sincere love for the sound vs aping it for hipster points. There’s no doubt that the quintet Wild Ones is in the former camp. Check out the sparkling “Paia” from 2013’s Keep It Safe” -WNYC
“The melodic grace of singer Danielle Sullivan is undeniable, while the band’s mix of buoyant synth-pop and familiar indie-rock keeps things moving ever forward.” -Spin
