WILD CUB
WILD CUB
Formed in early 2012 by songwriter-composer Keegan DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock, Wild Cub's debut LP 'Youth' was released last August in the US, and showcases the now five-piece band's dexterity in seamless transitions between infectious electro-pop, tropical rhythms, and quiet washes of cinematic reflection.

PASTE has called 'Youth' "full of small complexities that fill songs as they unwittingly slide into each other" and The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy deemed Wild Cub one of ‘12 Acts to Watch’ at the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon, while Entertainment Weeklyrecommended lead single "Thunder Clatter" as "clattering joyful noise." Press attention has continued with Nylon giving their ‘Band Crush’ stamp of approval, as well as video and track premieres on noted sites such as SPIN, PASTE, IFC, RCRD LBL, Refinery29 and more. A cover of Jessie Ware's "Running" & a remix of Atlas Genius' "Symptoms" brought increased awareness, the band’s electrifying live show has established Wild Cub as a force.

Freshly into 2013, the band has seen the release of Youth in the UK, with notable press attention from Clash Music, The Guardian, The Line Of Best Fit ("Youth relentlessly offers up huge pop songs delivered with sheer gusto & intelligence"), and Top Shop (“sweet, tropically-tinged, dance-y pop”). Not ones to rest for long, the band recently performed at designer Rebecca Minkoff’s NY Fashion Week show and burned through eight shows at this year’s SXSW festival. Wild Cub’s busy year will continue this summer with multiple festival performances – including at the Hangout Fest in May – and more touring to come.
Future Feats
Future Feats
FUTURE FEATS had a busy Summer in 2013, having just debuted in May with opening support dates with Youngblood Hawke / The Colourist and another date with Hunter Hunted (July), the band found time to record a handful of demos that resulted in the shimmering track “Cities in Wonder”. Produced by John Fields (Cut Copy, The Presets) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Vampire Weekend, HAIM), the song on first listen feels upbeat but the lyrics reveal some fairly dark themes.

“The band is high energy and musically pulling comparisons to the more pop-filled elements of Passion Pit….based on the sample sounds on their Soundcloud, could be one of the next big bands coming out of Chicago.” –The Deli Chicago
Soft Swells
Soft Swells
"Because it's prettier than Nada Surf, more hopeful than Spoon, and less glitchy than Bastille, yet somehow makes us think of all three. That's a good thing." - Esquire Magazine

"Soft Swells leave you in an electric melange of forget me nots, on the happy hearted note that parted hearts will meet again in life’s great happily ever after." - Impose Magazine
