Wild Cub - The "New" New Wave

Wild Cub - The "New" New Wave

It’s hard to place Wild Cub on a sonic scale. At first listen, we were reminded of the sound of Chic, with Nile’s Rodgers-esque guitar playing on “Wild Light”. At other times, we heard a little bit of early U2, shamelessly employing The Edge’s classic delayed guitar effect on “Colour”. After a listening to a few songs off of the band's latest LP, “Youth”, it is apparent that these guys are going through a late 1970’s/ New Wave kick...and they know what they are doing. Tracks like “The Water “ and “Wishing Well” take some of the best sounds first used by Peter Gabriel and Genesis and deliver them to a younger audience. The entire record is full of subtle anthems that we think you’ll want to hear more than a few times. - Sam Kogon (@samkogon)
