Wild Nothing's sophomore album Nocturne was a blissful dreamscape, seemingly overlooked as one of last year's great dream pop records. Jack Tatum quickly returns, bringing us a new EP titled Empty Estate. Recorded this past January, the EP sees Tatum "exploring new sounds, new instruments and a new voice for Wild Nothing."
"A Dancing Shell" is our first sense of what to expect from the seven-track EP, a bright track glistening with snythesizers. The bassline alone is fantastic, plucking along with confidence. Tatum's vocals are also much more expansive than before, drifting from monotone deepness to reverbed airiness. I like what I'm hearing. Check out the song below alongside it's colorful, geometric video.
Empty Estate Tracklist:
01. The Body In Rainfall
02. Ocean Repeating (Big-eyed Girl)
03. On Guyot
