Wild Light - California On My Mind

One would think the influence of roots rock/Americana on indie rock bands—like Arcade Fire, Calexico, Wilco and many others—should be at its tipping point by now. Nonetheless, Wild Light's debut Adult Nights, just released last week, is irresistible despite the same influence.

The sharp opening track “California On My Mind” joins vocal harmonies with vocal obscenities while a harmonica wails over sweeping guitars. The song is bright and soothing while the unrestrained perspective of the lyrics is delightfully entertaining.

If you like: Arcade Fire, Interpol, Beirut, The New Pornographers
