With influences from Alabama Shakes and Local Natives coming through in their sound, The Wild Now tear into performances with slow, soul drenched overtones that are then lit on fire with smoldering guitar riffs. Made up of members Taylor Baker on vocals and Drew Walker on lead guitar, Wes Maxwell on guitar, Zeke Levine on bass and Michael Gonzales on drums, the band has found a chemistry that is evident as soon as they play their first note.
The Wild Now were able to stop by Studio 1A and put on an incredible performance giving us a sneak peek into their new EP, Tides, which they are having a release party for at Stubbs this Thursday (4/14). Get your tickets while they’re available! If you didn’t catch their live studio session, never fear, you can stream it right here, on KUTX.
