Atlanta band The Wild came into being thanks to frontman Witt Wisebram, whose solo work as a folk musician evolved into the five-piece that performs as The Wild today. Their latest LP, Dreams Are Maps, is an impressive indicator of how the band has continued to change things up musically while staying true to the sound that first brought them together.
Dreams Are Maps was recorded by Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) at her Florida studio, and the band considers it to be a memorial for friend Anthony Poynter, who toured with the band often and died of cancer last year.
“Our ultimate goal is to tell stories that emphasize empowerment and not feeling alone. It’s about having no pretension and creating fans who are more like friends,” said Wisebram.
When it comes to making friends, it’s tough to imagine a visual that embodies that playful goal attitude more than the band’s new video for title track “Dreams Are Maps.” Check out the adventurous video, shot in Atlanta, in the player below.
