Wild Nothing’s fifth album, Indigo, brings more of the same to its listeners. Fans familiar with their earlier work should find solace in the familiar emotion that frontman Jack Tatum brings to the table. Accompanied by spectacular synth keys, what’s been accomplished is a comforting and enjoyable sound. However, as stated before, it should be said that there isn’t much takeoff in musical direction from their last album. Rolling waves of sound are to be expected in the 11-track listing, and Wild Nothing delivers.
As for the production of the album, Jack took back to the ways of his first album Gemini, in which he recorded the album solo, going back to record with other musicians and adding them in after the fact. It allows an aspect of creativity to be expressed not only musically but in the conception of the album. All in all, smooth and well versed vocals overlay mystical melodies in Wild Nothing’s Indigo.
