Wild Domestic

Do you remember indie/alternative rock band Wild Domestic, the brainchild of Matt Carlson? I wrote about them a couple of months ago, when they released Author, the first single off their new EP Singular.

Well, Singular is released today, January 20, and I'm happy to report that we already have a strong contender for the best EP of the year! All of the 8 tracks included in the mini-album are really worth your attention, as from the start to the end there is not a single bad song to be found.

Matt Carlson explains the inspiration for the EP: "Singular is an initial foray into a concept album. It is based on my conception of an emotional/literal car ride where the driver ends up picking belongings from an ex lover."

My favourite tracks on the EP are New Year, New Me, that reminds me of the rawer songs of Feeder; Overjoyed, an awesome  Jimmy Eat World-influenced number; the dreamy, intense Firewall; the aforementioned Author, a track that I previously described as reminiscent to Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance and a punk version of Counting Crows.

So, what are you waiting for? Stream the whole Singular EP on Spotify and buy it on iTunes.right now.
