wild_nothing_230413Fresh out of the desert for their Coachella debut, WILD NOTHING return with Empty Estate, the follow-up EP to the critically acclaimed “Nocturne”, which received several year-end accolades including album of the year in Under The Radar and iTunes.

The 7-song EP was recorded in Brooklyn at Gary’s Electric by Al Carlson in January and finds Jack Tatum exploring new sounds, new instruments and a new voice for Wild Nothing. The EP features new paintings and illustrations from Eric Shaw. Follow the link below to watch the animated video for one of the EP’s many highlights ‘A Dancing Shell’… 

A few words from Jack on the inspirations to make this EP and how it came about…
“This is a record that happened very fast for me. We had just gotten back from a particularly long European tour last November, our first supporting Nocturne, and I was feeling a lot of things. I found myself struggling with what it meant to be a musician, with what music in general meant to me and what part I could possibly play in it. Playing the same songs every night for months left me bored with myself. But when I got home, for the first time in awhile it suddenly seemed that the pressure was off. We didn’t have any tours planned for several months and I started to remember again why I love music in the first place. I listened to Brian Eno and David Bowie for weeks on end and felt like I was hearing them for the first time. I took a trip to Miami with my girlfriend. I visited my family. I felt free to try things musically that I would have stifled before. The songs on this EP were recorded over a 10 day period and are a reflection of this time. Of all the frustrations and successes and moments of peace in between. “
