Wild Nothing - Shadow
"Shadow" is the leading track to Wild Nothing's Nocturne. It's clean, crisp, and catchy. A stammering guitar riff tangled in flowing bass and bright acoustic strumming create a structured melody reminiscent of 80's dream pop. On "Shadow", Jack Tatum's hauntingly bright and airy vocals give the track phosphorescence and fluidity. His lyrics seems to wash back and forth from line to line, and stanza to stanza. While the tracks off of Nocturne do all sound similar, it does not tire the listener. Instead we get an 11 song LP that consistently delivers solid structures, creativity, lyrics, and emotion. With the simple, yet catchy, guitar melody and orchestral implementations, "Shadow" becomes one of the highlights off of the LP.
