Wilderado

an arresting confluence of soaring melodies, lush harmonies, and driving indie rock, the ep is the band’s most collaborative work yet, bearing the distinctive writing influence and unique sonic sensibilities of all four members (lead singer/guitarist max rainer, bassist/vocalist colton dearing, guitarist/vocalist tyler wimpee, and drummer justin kila). recorded with production mastermind phil ek (father john misty, fleet foxes), ‘favors’ marks the dawn of a new era for tulsa rockers wilderado, as their already-epic sound pushes into more nuanced and mature territory than ever before.

from the slow-and-steady build of ‘you don’t love me” to the explosive power “siren,” the collection elevates the grandeur and drama of the band’s arrangements without sacrificing any of the grit or muscle behind it. “we wanted big guitars, big cymbals, big drums, big vocals, but we still wanted it to come across pretty,” explains rainer. indeed, beauty is the ep’s hallmark: the beauty of radical honesty, the beauty of self-actualization, the beauty of metamorphosis. the songs offer up candid slices of self-reflection, unafraid look critically in the mirror as they juxtapose magnificent musical arrangements with lacerating lyrics and heartrending deliveries, but ultimately, they’re not about judgment at all. instead, the music celebrates the growth that comes from turning weakness into strength, from pushing beyond the boundaries what previously seemed possible in order to fully become yourself.

‘favors’ follows a pair of eps—‘misty shrub’ and ‘latigo’—and a collection of singles released to widespread critical acclaim, with consequence of sound hailing wilderado’s music as “glorious” and paste lauding its “south-central americana-meets-laurel canyon vibe.” praise across the pond was similarly effusive, with nme highlighting the band’s “impressive harmonies” and clash falling for their “natural grace.” the tunes racked up more than 15 million streams on spotify and helped the group earn festival performances from bonnaroo to sasquatch in addition to dates with band of horses, lindsey buckingham & christine mcvie, judah & the lion, and more.
