"Top 5 Albums of 2014"

It’s hard to find a good trio these days who can encapsulate
the feeling of a full band without gimmicks, especially any
-thing where the band’s traditional lead guitarist has been
replaced by anything not resembling a guitar. These bands
are often categorized as “disposable” because, while eyecatching,
they tend to dissolve quickly and feel compelled to
incorporate other elements to gain a larger audience. But Big
Wild Wings decided to buck the trends hard by combining a
kickass drummer in Chris Soper with a master synth-player
in Tyler Hummel, topping it off with the captivating Lyndsi
Austin as their lead vocalist on bass. Within the last year, the
trio have become the alt/indie band to see in SLC, capping
everything off with their debut full-length album, Speaking In
Cursive, which came out in November. This album feels like
a genuine sugary treat in a year surrounded by gristle-like
metal and hardcore releases, meshing an ‘80s quality synth
-pop sound with a ‘90s-empowered tone and lyrics to create a
downplayed kind of electro-rock. Austin’s vocals seal the deal,
evoking emotion from the simplest of octaves that will cause
you to ponder past memories while swaying to the beat. Over
the years, Utah’s alternative scene has periodically gone from
dominant to nonexistent in a matter of months, and while 2014
held some pretty decent works from newcomers, Speaking In
Cursive is by far the standout album of the genre, released just
as the year started coming to a close. –Gavin Sheehan - SLUG Magazine


"Best of Utah Music 2015"

One of the most striking aspects of Big Wild Wings' debut album, Speaking in Cursive—released in November—is the interplay between its many opposites. Hard-hitting alt-rock is wrapped in melodic piano and beautifully delicate atmosphere; Lyndsi Austin can sing with ethereal airiness as well as roof-raising power; and moments of melancholy seem to give way to sun-dappled hope. It all combines to create a moody sound that'll appeal to fans of The Cure and Regina Spektor and—as evidenced by Big Wild Wings' steady gigging schedule—the trio is continuously improving and exploring it. - Kolbie Stonehocker - Salt Lake City Weekly
