WILDERADO
WILDERADO
An arrestingconfluenceof soaring melodies, lush harmonies, and driving indie rock, the EP is the band’smost collaborative work yet, bearingthe distinctive writing influence and unique sonic sensibilities of all four members(lead singer/guitarist Max Rainer, bassist/vocalist Colton Dearing, guitarist/vocalist Tyler Wimpee, and drummerJustin Kila).Recorded with production mastermind Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), ‘Favors’marks the dawn ofa new era forTulsa rockersWilderado,as their already-epic sound pushes into more nuanced and mature territory than ever before. From the slow-and-steady build of ‘You Don’t Love Me” to the explosive power “Siren,” the collection elevates the grandeur and drama of the band’sarrangements without sacrificing any of the grit or muscle behind it. “We wanted big guitars, big cymbals, big drums, big vocals, but we still wanted it to come across pretty,” explains Rainer.Indeed, beauty is the EP’s hallmark: the beauty of radical honesty, the beauty of self-actualization, the beauty of metamorphosis.The songs offer up candid slices of self-reflection, unafraid look critically in the mirror as they juxtapose magnificent musical arrangements with lacerating lyrics and heartrending deliveries, but ultimately, they’re not aboutjudgment at all. Instead, the music celebratesthe growth that comes from turning weakness into strength, from pushing beyondthe boundarieswhatpreviouslyseemedpossible in order tofully becomeyourself.‘Favors’follows a pair of EPs—‘Misty Shrub’ and ‘Latigo’—and a collection of singles released towidespread critical acclaim, with Consequence of Sound hailing Wilderado’s musicas “glorious” and Pastelauding its “South-Central Americana-meets-Laurel Canyon vibe.” Praise across the pond was similarly effusive, with NMEhighlightingthe band’s“impressive harmonies” and Clashfalling for their “natural grace.” Thetunesracked up more than 15million streams on Spotify and helped the groupearn festival performances from Bonnaroo to Sasquatchin addition to dates with Band of Horses, Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie, Judah & The Lion, and more.
