Now Playing: Wild Nothing – 'Letting Go'

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Jack Tatum's project Wild Nothing is back again with a new single entitled 'Letting Go', as well as news of a fourth album, which is due for release in a few months.

'Letting Go' is enwrapped in feelings of nostalgia, with its shoegaze guitars, as well as the 80s-esque synths. The song is an invigorating and evocative number with powerful lyrics about finding release. Tatum uses imagery of a music box, and how once opened, the music is free. The chorus is particularly powerful; "I want to be happier now / I want to be more than closed / Surreal, the way you made me out / The way you crashed me down".

Wild Nothing's forthcoming album, Indigo, will be released on 31st August via Captured Tracks. You can pass the time by jamming 'Letting Go' on repeat, we know we will be.
