You readers out there know how much I love shimmering pop/almost emo-like music. Well, WYLDR, is one of those bands. WYLDR is comprised of members Will Winters (singer-songwriter), Taylor Van Ginkel (guitarist) and Michael Matta (multi-instrumentalist). This band has all the right hooks; hooks, talent, the songs, and the emotion. I so love this band. They remind me of Silversun Pickups or Atlas Genius. This is the new sound of emo/pop. This is definitely a band that is going places. Free Bike Valet says about “Captive” that it’s:
“a stellar song with a theatrical presence soaring on echoing guitar hooks, soft synths, and distantly thundering digi-drums.”
I totally agree. Listen to this song. This is one of those bands you can use to romance that perfect guy/girl (or for that one-night stand). Romance is in the air.
