My moderate level of familiarity with Wild Ones hasn’t precluded me from seeing the potential hidden in their music. With beauts like “Rivals” and it’s subsequent remix by Trails And Ways, as well as “From Nothing”, the signs were all there even if I was overlooking them. With “Paia”, the chickens have come home to roost for this blogger. I should have been all over Wild Ones from the start.
“I went with heavy heart, I’ll never leave you lost where we are bound to go”
“Paia” is gorgeously realized. Picture the idealistic summer day; puffy white clouds in the skies, crystal clear lake waters, old knotty tents and a handful of your closest friends, punctuated with the “only one”…but it’s a daydream.
Wild Ones poignant new track is a heartfelt message of words left unsaid, invoking that same feeling of stepping out into the sun from the shadows on a crisp, breezy day. The sounds are so sweet it’s very easy to get lost in the moment.
