Wild Ones :: "From Nothing"
Wild Ones alight to boxing up heartbreak into little pop songs. On latest single, "From Nothing" from their delicate and charming debut LP, Keep It Safe, the blinking synths and mild down stroke guitars coalesce behind the adorable vocal of Danielle Sullivan. It isn't a world of good answers, Sullivan cooing, "It ain't lit up" about the sorts of existential darkness that lies at the core of so many human relations. No one has hit this disjointed juxtaposition so well since Jenny Lewis and Rilo Kiley churned out similar sounding music in the early 2000s. The arrangement of "From Nothing" unravels in the bridge before rewiring back toward the final refrains, a layered duet of Sullivan's voice done twice, crystalline delicacy about the dark little centers of the universe.
