In a lot of ways, Wild Nothing is our very own Peter Pan. Capturing childhood/teenage melancholy on infinite loop. Every bummer a world ender, every revelation the greatest of all time. Of course, he's got some distance from those actual moments—and it's that distance that makes these songs so good. "Golden Haze" is from an upcoming EP coming out soon on Captured Tracks. It sounds like whatever season you want to sound like, and whatever moment from your past (or present if you're an actual teenager jamming to this in real time) you connect with most.
