Track Of The Day: Wildcat! Wildcat! – Hero
In a time where most of us have let Rock slip out of our minds due to lack of good quality, a few groups shine through to bring us some splendid tunes through the indie-pop and electro rock categories. If you’re big fans of M83, The Postal Service, Jet, and other such bands, you’re really going to enjoy today’s track.
Wildcat! Wildcat! is an L.A.-based trio consisting of Jesse Taylor (vocals, bass), Michael Wilson (vocals, keys) and Jesse Carmichael (vocals, drums). Today they’re bringing us their new single “Hero,” complete with a debut video!
Hero is an enjoyable track with a very mellow and traditional indie-pop feel that we all know and love. This comes reminiscent of some great tracks; Gorillaz – Tomorrow Comes Today, The Postal Service – Such Great Heights, Deptford Goth – Union, M83 – Midnight City. That last one shouldn’t surprise you because this album was co-produced by White Sea (Aka Morgan Kibby), so if he believed in their sound, it’s because it’s as successful as M83’s (Which it is). The song is catchy, has great lyrics, and has a warm but laid back feeling, typical of some of the best indie-pop songs.
If you enjoy today’s track, they have a 10 track debut album set to be released August 5th via Downtown Records, aptly named No Moon At All. And if you’re digging it so much that you must see them in concert, their tour dates are as follows..
