Okay, so I might be slightly obsessed with the latest from Wild Ones (who just so happened to be last week's Friday Fascination.) This photo was taken on a moody day, so it just fits - but this isn't to say that the rest of the playlist follows suit. 
As always, hope you dig it as much as I do. 

By the way, you can always stalk follow Let Your Ears Decide over on SoundCloud for more updates/reposts/you get it.

Friday Fascination: Wild Ones

Shortly after I saw ON AN ON play a set (while it rained) during the Tilly's & Culture Collide showcase at this year's SXSW, I decided to stick around the venue with no idea of who was playing next. Once a young group of individuals took the (muddy-ish) stage I realized it was Wild Ones, and I was instantly stoked (while I continued to sip my Lone Star.) Last year they released their debut full-length Keep It Safe, and with the announcement that their next album will be released this August titled Heatwave, we clearly know what they've been up to lately. "Dim the Lights" is the first single to be released, and I absolutely love it. It flows so well that I just want to leave it on repeat (so I did.) In comparison to their previous material - "Dim the Lights" adds an extra punch that delivers a catchier edge than what we're used to. You're doing it & you're doing it well, Wild Ones.
I'll keep it simple, this song alone has me extra excited for August now, and especially for the future of this Portland band.

*insert hearts for eyes emoji*
Is it just me or is each week getting better and better with the new releases? 
We're nearly at the halfway mark of the year, and looking back over all of the FVM playlists has me believing this year is already winning. Next week's FVM will be a special one, can you guess what will be on it?  

P.S. Did you see Sasha's coverage of Funk at the (Santa Barbara) Bowl from last week? Have no fear, you can get the 411 here
