Los Angeles folk trio WILD got started in different areas of the music industry: Kristina Antuna tracked vocals for EDM projects, while guitarists Zach DeGaetano and Tyler Thompson worked as music writers. An eventful writing session for music briefs diverged to their first single "Stay", leading the three to their self-titled debut album. Now, the band's newly released single "Vagabond" spins bright-eyed, anthemic hooks and arpeggios with an acoustic twang as Kristina Antuna nods to a life's path — perhaps theirs — trailing off into the unknown. We point them towards the direction of Run River North, Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men — open-armed coastal folk pop acts that you can sing along to.
WILD are flying off for a quick minute to perform in New York, before trekking back for a pair of free shows; listen to "Vagabond" and catch WILD's live performances below. - Ryan Mo
