Wild Pink are a new name to add to the kind of loquacious, literate band who take their cue from 90's slacker indie but add something magical to the brew. Recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Pixies) this self titled debut promises to follow in the footpaths of the likes of Grandaddy and Spoon in creating a well thought out but laid back brand of slacker pop.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 04 April 2017

Here’s a nice band. Just hanging out, they are. Occasionally slow, sometimes a little less slow, mostly mumbling; it’s the kind of indie rock I’d have as a conversation. Having absorbed little moments of slowcore and slacker, plus the more widescreen elements of shoegaze adopted by bands like A Sunny Day In Glasgow, these quiet thrashers have made a rather lovely homage to feelings fuzz.

As always, I love a band who are capable of waiting before they pitch, and Wild Pink have some lovely dynamic scene changes going for them as a result: the dusty solo guitar that introduces “Run On” recalls the Twilight Sad with its empty-room shoe-shuffling, but it eventually erupts into guitar chugs a la Superchunk and a noisy breakdown of humming guitars and overloud drums. Wild Pink seem a little in love with making these mini-epic indie rock songs, coming back for more on “Battle of Bedford Falls”, where they posit jangle pop but then march through it with pulsating drums before broaching another slow, mathy and awkwardly structured outro.

They keep you guessing as much as they keep you feeling; a good thing too, because they’re largely playing in the same tones for most of the record. If you like bands feeling sorry for themselves at different levels of indie intensity, though, this one is for you: they can be on the border of Dino Jr. one day and be crooning like Bon Iver the next. Have I compared them to enough bands yet or do I need to keep saying things?
