Last Thursday, Austin’s Wild Child stopped by our office to play a few songs and mingle with our Music Designers. Equipped with a variety of string instruments and an adorable miniature amp, three of band’s members (Alexander Beggins, Kelsey Wilson, and Sadie Wolfe) gave a rare, intimate acoustic performance. First up was a song, entitled “This Place,” from Wild Child’s upcoming album, The Runaround. Releasing October 8th, the new album was produced by indie rock nobleman Ben Kweller (who also signed the band to his new label, The Noise Company).
Wild Child finished their set with three songs from their debut album, Pillow Talk, including “Someone Else,” “Bridges Burning,” and “That’s What She Say.” Each song showcased their gorgeous harmonies, beautiful melodies, and playful chemistry, and the attentive crowd was left wanting more. After the performance, the band was kind enough to hand out advance copies of The Runaround. I expect it to be in heavy rotation around the office for quite awhile.
Austinite’s can catch Wild Child’s album release party next Friday, October 11th at ACL Live. The following week the band will be heading out on a tour of the U.S. so visit their website to find a show near you!
