Nashville has long been an epicenter of American music and one of a handful of cities around the world that exudes music from from every street corner. So it’s no surprise that a city that saturated with music would produce Wild Cub.
The duo is made of film composer/singer/songwriter Dewitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock. Together, the two spent most of 2011 touring as Dewitt: hitting SXSW, New York Fashion Week and CMJ Music Marathon. After nearly a year of touring together as Dewitt the two returned home to Nashville. Once again surround by the city of music, Wild Cub was born. In months following they wrote and recorded their debut LPYouth.
The LP is a wealth of unexpected sonic experiences. Intricate blends of musical inspirations and soulful vocals effortlessly pull you into their welcoming haze. Youth has spurred attention from national press including MTV Hive, Paste, and RCRD LBL. Their latest single from the LP, ‘Streetlights’ and it’s accompanying video are sure to only focus an even stronger gaze on the duo.
The video for ‘Streetlights’ is mesmerizing in it’s simple intimate beauty. Abstract still photos come together to tell a story of two lovers wrapped up in and around each other sharing quiet delicate moments of connection.
Wild Cub have also launched a new immersive micro site that brings Youth to life in a multidimensional experience. Here you can surround yourself in past videos and brand new video loops. You will also find downloads of rare demos and stems from every album track and can become part of their sound yourself.
If you want a more personal experience and are in New York City this upcoming week you can see the duo live as part of the CMJ Music Marathon during three shows.
