Hear This: Wild Cub

Miles/November 27, 2012

Hats off to Nashville, you’ve done it again – surprising us and many others with your ability to produce amazing sounds, constantly. Wild Cub is no exception. If you’re doubting, then listen to Thunder Clatter. You’ll love it within the first 15 seconds of hearing it. It has soul, fast-paced percussions, almost an island-vibe strings tone and has already had the repeat button hit several times by our fingers.

Wild Cub is centered on film composer (Cold Weather, Dance Party USA) and singer/songwriter (2009’s LP Islands, 2010’s Nothing Shows EP and Two Hearts/Reluctance 7”) DeWitt, and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock (Pico vs. Island Trees, Jessie Baylin, Madi Diaz). They toured most of 2011 under DeWitt’s name, who’d gotten good press attention from AOL Music’s Spinner, FilterMagazine.com, My Old Kentucky Blog, Paste (‘Best New Solo Artists of 2010′), Popmatters, and Vogue.com, among others: hitting SXSW, New York Fashion Week (for designer Billy Reid), and the CMJ Music Marathon; and touring with Jeremy Messersmith and on the 4th Daytrotter Barnstormer tour alongside artists including Sondre Lerche and Guards, among other shows. Wild Cub was officially born upon returning home last fall, and Youth was written and recorded over two months in Bullock’s house, which was turned into a multi-room studio.” -From the artist’s website.
