With This Wild Life looks can be deceiving. I was. Even after reading the PR that came through, I thought ‘nah, can’t be’. But I was wrong!
History is the first single from their forthcoming debut album Clouded which comes out on Epitaph on the 25th May; watch the very start of the video and see why their looks disguise some beautiful harmonies and acoustic guitar playing.
Hailing from Long Beach, California, This Wild Life are Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso; they met, became friends, formed This Wild Life as a pop-punk band, and then decided to ditch amps and reach over for the acoustic guitars. Some would question their decision making, even their mental states, but they would be really, really wrong!
History is heartfelt, touching, and poignant. You can tell that personal experience went into this particular track. The instrumentation is assured which, together with the vocals of the pair, makes for a compelling song.
With luck, you’ll have an album review to read at some point in the near future.
