"Rock debut is a highlight of local music so far this year"

Seth Anderson has the sort of confident snarl that turns heads and perks up ears.

The city-based band he fronts is an excellent outfit versed in indie, punk, rock and pop, creating the perfect environment for his voice. Saturday Sirens writes songs strong enough to catch the ear, but not so strong that they steal the spotlight from the vocals. That’s the best of both worlds.

“Christopher Walken” sees Anderson roaring in an Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse) tone over an indie-influenced rock song with great sense of rhythmic control.

“Good in Green” has a punk-charged sensibility that makes his demeaning sneer all the more attractive and satisfying. But it’s not all mile-a-minute rock, as about half the tracks rely heavily on acoustic guitar for a poporiented sound.

Anderson morphs his voice yet again for numbers like “Whale City,” “Freedom” and “Constellations.” He is clearly a rock singer doing pop, as his inflections still show an attitude, but that gives the soaring songs a unique bite. The self-titled disc is an incredibly impressive debut, and a highlight of the year so far. —Stephen Carradini - Oklahoma Gazette

Bio

The Wilds are a band. A rock and roll band. The kind of rock and roll band that plays under the possession of blood, sweat, beers, tears, and years of yearning for the perfect mixture of polished and rawness. Their grouchy guitars and thunderous drums fortify the guilty confessionals that are backed strongly by the undertones.

Conception took place in Oklahoma, but The Wilds were birthed by the hills of Ohio. When you let the music do the talking, you understand what new act “The Wilds” are all about. The debut EP, being recorded in Brooklyn, NY, is set to release in December of 2012. Until then, find The Wilds when you can. It’s a jungle out there.
