Wildcat! Wildcat! Is Heading “Straight To The Top”
Taking a break is always nice. It allows you to collect your thoughts, assess your situation in life and reinvigorates that creative spark. Wildcat! Wildcat! took this past year off to begin writing and recording new material after spending 2014 touring and promoting their first EP and debut album, No Moon At All. The first single released this year is as beautiful as the sun rising each morning. Produced by M83‘s Morgan Kibby, “Straight To The Top” definitely has that familiar sound M83 is know for. But it’s Jesse Taylor‘s vocals that seemingly fit hand-in-hand with this majestic track. Jesse Carmichael‘s handling on the song envelops you, lifting the track into a state where you feel like you will be lifted to the top.
“We’ve been lucky to have learned so much over the past couple years,” says the duo. “So after putting out a full album in 2014, we wanted to get back to how we started, by releasing songs individually along with its own artwork. We have thrown ourselves into our work spending a lot of time in getting it right so it seems natural to let the songs breathe a little. We couldn’t be more thankful to our fans who have supported us and been waiting for new music for over a year. Our music belongs as much to them as it does to us, and from the beginning it’s always felt like we somehow become a part of what our fans have reflected back to us in the way they listen and respond. That kind of bond is really something special to be a part of so we are definitely looking forward to this next chapter with them.”
