Stream: The Lonely Wild, “Buried in the Murder”

“Buried in the Murder,” the first single of their recently announced debut LP, The Sun As it Comes, due out April 2, is an epic tale, both lyrically and musically. What begins as a seemingly simple, charming, indie folk tune quickly grows into a dark, twisted, bombastic tribal anthem. The melancholic acoustic traded for aggressive, wailing electric riffs, and the restrained vocals exchanged for shouts, all with the constant underpinning of mixed percussion that sounds like the purgatory of a chain gang. This is mature storytelling executed with the all the epic atmosphere of a film score. Equal parts romance and testosterone, this song soars as it aches. If this is what we should expect from the rest of the album, then it’s sure to be a year-end favorite. The Lonely Wild are gearing up for a spring tour, but you can catch them at the Echo on February 8 in support of The Little Ones. - Jacqueline Caruso
