I first saw The Wild Family at their EP release party in January at SPACE. They opened for The Strumbellas.
I first thought, “Ok, these guys don’t have their sh** together. This guy is wearing a Nebraska shirt and they definitely don’t have that packaged ‘look.’ I might as well just head to the bar to grab a glass of wine.”
Thankfully, I was wrong.
Within 15-seconds of their set, I fell in love with the combination of their long, drawn out chord progressions and haunting vocal harmonies.
I can’t say it’s quite unlike anything I’ve heard before. But, I’ve never heard anything quite like it before. Many are quick to disregard Chicago’s homegrown talent.
All I’m asking that you do, is to take a listen.
