Wild Nothing is the solo project of virginia born Jack Tatum, who's music is the product of an unhealthy obsession with nostalgia. Equal parts teenage wasteland and inexplicable regret, his songs are the kind that could only be made by the young at heart. Unlike the current herd of one-man bedroom bands, Tatum creates complex textural environments that aim for something higher. Melodies that yearn to stay with you. Warped interpretations of Johnny Marr's guitar work and the cure's careful synth arrangements. Dreamy, catchy, and intriguing. Here's to missing your youth. Like a blend of Cocteau Twins and Atlas Sound, the songs on his breakthrough full-length debut, Gemini, are willowy and ethereal but tethered to a sturdy and sinewy backbone.
