Reliably informed


Succulent Recordings

Released: 15.07.22







Wylderness have expanded not only their number but also their sound, which has grown and flourished with the introduction of lo-fi synths, complex instrumentation and clear experimentation creating a hybrid of jangly pop energy and their more familiar woozy sun drenched wall of shoegazing noise in this their first outing for four years.

There’s a distinct change in the music as the album progresses, it begins with starkly reverberated guitar that gradually widens its horizons, then with the instrumental side one closing track Warped the music transforms into an expansive crucible of fuzzed-out stoner feedback noise, and a very welcome auditory exploration which peaks with the track YLT VS VU, an undisguised reference to their influences as a whole.
