Today, indie-folk-pop trio WILD share the final single from their highly anticipated debut full-length record, Goin’ Back, out January 15th. The heartfelt and catchy track, “Keeps Me Coming Back,” serenades the listener with a message of following one’s heart while the official video throws it back to the 1980’s with a nostalgic love story set in a wrestling ring.
WILD adds, “We wrote this song with Matt from The Mowgli’s and Mason from Metro Station. It was one of those songs that came so naturally. It was just us having fun and laughing and the song was done! It’s about following your heart and knowing when it’s right. Our feelings for someone aren’t always certain, but it’s something worth coming back to as long as you have hope.”
The songs on Goin’ Back were born from a fruitful writing trip to Nashville, but WILD felt it was important to return to Los Angeles to record. “We make ‘L.A. Folk.’ If you go to Oregon, Tennessee, or Texas, the genre sounds different. This is what folk would sound like in Los Angeles because of the production and the hooks.” They add, “’Goin’ Back’ is something we’ve been working towards for a long time. We feel it embodies everything we stand for as a band and shows all our growth throughout the years. We’re so happy to have made this record and can’t wait for you to hear it.”
The record will feature all six tracks from their 2020 EP, Yours & Mine, including “This Is Our Time,” which cracked 1.8 million+ Spotify streams and soundtracked a national Mazda commercial. It will also include their recent collaboration with Zac Barnett of American Authors on the title track and several unreleased songs.
