Cole’s Indie Music Corner: Wild Nothing
The sophomore release by Jack Tatum (a.k.a Wild Nothing) is a masterful throwback to 80s synth pop, with echoes of The Church and The Cure and a little dash of My Bloody Valentine shoegaze to boot. Improving upon his great debut Gemini, Nocturne is a a treat from start to finish — the record is full of constant highs, with the incredibly addictive title track Nocturne regularly rotating through my iPod as I drive around LA. There’s a certain breezy easiness with each of these tracks, dancing between mid-tempo and upbeat that creates a relaxing yet exhilarating listen. Nocturne officially releases tomorrow, August 28th, so download it as soon as it becomes available — you won’t be disappointed.
