The Lonely Wild
Silver Lake band The Lonely Wild exist at a junction of sounds that look back to songs of the West (or the imaginary Italian towns that stood in for America’s frontier on film) and forward to the raw rock tradition that has evolved in the region over twenty years. They aren’t a country band and they’re not quite rock either. Here, at that space between, the aching voice of singer/guitarist Andrew Carroll coalesces with Jessi Williams’ soaring vocals, while Andrew Schneider’s guitar textures and Ryan Ross’ keys create rich textures over Dave Farina’s tumbling drums. Together, they make music both melancholy and hopeful, raucous and tender; opposites shored-upon each other, in a singular sound, a sincere sound that battles against this age of cynicism.
