Wild Child (the KUTX Artist of the Month) has been on a massive upward trajectory since the Austin band’s 2011 debut and it doesn’t show many signs of stopping. Fools, the group’s third album, is another vibrant collection of folk-pop, but the subject matter is far from sunny. Frontwoman Kelsey Wilson broke up with her longtime fiancé, and she poured her pain into her songs. “My heart is broke / So it can’t bend” she sings on “Bullets,” but the themes of regret and heartbreak are balanced by Wild Child’s bouncy, orchestral arrangement. You can download a Studio 1A version of the song below, and catch Wild Child at Stubb’s on Saturday, November 28.
