iTunes Review

After winning both Best Indie Act and Best Folk Act at the 2013 Austin Music Awards, Wild Child had much to live up to on its second album, 2013’s The Runaround. Fan Ben Kweller stepped in to produce and supplement the duo’s sound after its largely ukulele-and-violin debut album, Pillow Talk. A number of local musicians built out the duo’s ranks to a full sextet, with drums, electric bass, keyboards, and cello adding structure and warmth and ensuring that songs like “Crazy Bird” and “Coming Home” have an accessible sound. This shift doesn't feel like a gimmick; it seems as if two fine, mature singer/songwriters—Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins—are coming into their own with new friends. “Stitches” plays up Wild Child's homespun charm with a wordless sing-along that’s perfect for a campfire. “This Place” and “Left Behind” even capture a reflective, somber mood. This is a melodic group that still has room to grow over the years.

Real Instruments, Real Voices, Real Music

Since I discovered Wild Child about 9 months ago, I haven't stopped listening to them. Literally.

I've never fallen so hard for a band like this before. Wild Child is nothing more than pure perfection. Especially this album. When it finally came out, I waited to listen to it until I could get my headphones, lay in bed, and turn off the lights so it would just be me and the music. Every song on this album is amazing. I couldn't tell you which one is my favorite becuase I love them all. I listen to this album every single day on my way to and from school. It's been 3 months and I'm still not tired of them. Besides, Kelsey is teaching me how to sing. ;)

If you like hearing real instruments, if you like hearing real voices, if you like hearing real music, then Wild Child is for you.

Buy this album. Support Wild Child. They deserve to be recognized for the amazing musicians that they are.
