Wild Nothing Los Angeles based musician Jack Tatum’s has announced the groups fourth album Indigo will be released on 31st August via Captured Track. The new single Letting Go is available for listening below
Indigo is written utilizing the artful mechanisms of the human touch with precise technology to allow Tatum to create the sound he was looking for his entire career. The new album matches Wild Nothing’s transcendent sweep on Gemini (2010) with the lessons and creative steps added from Nocturne and Life Of Pause.
Tatum wrote pieces on guitar and keyboards “in the box” with plug ins and programs. He wrote a series of highly detailed demos sent them to record with a live band in the studio to get a rough 1980’s sound. Tatum said: “I wanted it to sound like a classic studio record, as close as I could get it there. It just boils down to me wanting to fit into some larger narrative, musically, in terms of these artists I love, I think about how my music will age. Ideas of ‘timeless’ are going to be different—so if Indigo is not timeless then it’s at least ‘out of time.’”
Tatum booked out 4 days at Sunset Sound’s Studio and hired drummer Cam Allen and guitarist Benji Lysaght to track the record whilst Tatum played bass. Producer Jorge Ellbrecht (Ariel Pink, Gang Gang Dance, Japanese Breakfast) helped build Wild Nothing’s album sound. The pair mixed the album in Denver in ten days after which Tatum took it back to his Glassel Park studio for polishing.
